Makers (Winter 2014)Sean Murray

Dexter, Ethan, Reid and Trent are a great problem-solving team. In nine ninety-minute sessions, the conceived, designed and built a working drawbridge spanning 16 feet.

Our last work session was like all those before it, but more so--collaborative, fun, focused and full of meaty problems to tackles together.

When the last screw was driven, we had a working drawbridge. Pulley systems made raising and lowering the platforms very easy, and our precision in construction payed off--the two sections of the bridge meshed flawlessly.

Many thanks to these four young builders--we can't wait to see what you guys do next!
