The insects are beginning to grow some stingers and legs! And their bodies are morphing from 2D to 3D before our eyes. We saw some great collaboration this week as well; tinkering is always more fun when we work together!
The butterfly team made great progress on the body, attaching supports between the two sides. Next steps will be to attach wings and a head.
There's enough room for two in the belly of the butterfly!
Our winged spider team also worked together well, trading off and on between drilling, screwing, and holding the wood for each other.
VOILA! A job well done. Time to bask in the satisfaction and take a rest :) Rest breaks are just as important as time spent tinkering some days!
The queen bee insect team made a fierce looking stinger with PVC pipe and wire this week!
After drilling lots of holes in the pipe and board, all that was left was to thread the aluminum wire through the pieces and and twist them tight.
Proud as a queen bee! And for good reason. Look at what we can accomplish when we work together!
Stay tuned for next weeks' installment of fun, buggy tinkering!
