This week concluded our 8 week long session at Willie Mays Boys and Girls Club. It was an exciting journey from start to finish, and we ended it on a high note with a thrilling train ride that our tinkerers built themselves!
At the final session we broke up into three groups to finish our main project elements: The tunnel, the train car, and the track (complete with ramp!) We had a lot of parts that had to fit together in order to work well and keep the train moving along.
This project was a great example of making multiple iterations and testing, then re-testing. During the last two sessions the tracks had to be modified and cut down, the axles had to be replaced and re-adjusted, AND we had to move/adjust the wheels multiple times… but we did it and it worked!
Everything came together in the end and we had a blast testing it out!
The Tinkering School staff had a blast collaborating with everyone at Willie Mays Boys and Girls Club. Thank you for a great winter session!!
