At Tinkering School we keep the kids in suspense of what we are going to build at after school until it's time to actually design. This approach allows us to capture the kids initial response and creativity that surfaces when prepared with pencils and a piece of paper and a big an idea. It also helps us collaborators managed expectations and constraints in real time. With that said, "we're going to build.. a YELLOW SUBMARINE!"
Portia puts some "personal" touches on her submarine design. Namely, her name.
After sharing our designs and determining a master plan we can all agree on, it's time to build!
