At the end of the day we asked the kids to raise their hands if they had a story about accomplishing one of our Tinkering School goals: Collaborating with others, Trying harder than usual, Learning from mistakes, and Building something bigger than yourself. Everyone could think of one moment when they had accomplished one of our goals and most kids had done two or three of them!
We are off to a great start!
