In the first day of Tinkering School After School Middles, we learned how to safely use the drills and chop saw, and started on our first challenge.
In Tinkering School, collaborators present kids with a problem (or theme). The solution to the problem (or expression of the theme) is open-ended, and determined by the young builders.
We're warming up with a mini-challenge: build something that, when you stand on it, makes you taller than Nik, our altudinous junior collaborator!
The kids got right to work on solutions as different as they were creative.
Stay tuned for more!
