Mini Golf - Weeks 1 & 2

Mini Golf (Winter 2019)Brendon BellComment

Happy 2019, everyone! We are back from Winter Break and ready to start up Tinkering again. This session we have many new faces and a few familiar ones, too. We are already two weeks in and have made lots of progress on our fun and silly group project- a MINI GOLF COURSE!

During our first session, our returning tinkerers got a refresher on tool safety and our newcomers learned how to use the chop saw, drills, and clamps.

We ended the day with a design session to get our creativity and big ideas flowing. By our second session we were all ready to jump straight into building. The innovation and collaboration is at full force- check out some of our big ideas in the making!

Thinking caps are on and our design sessions are underway!

Tool safety training! Matthew masters his skills on the chopsaw. The Volcano group makes a successful bridge out of clamps, and Esme and Nola collaborate while using the drills.
