Tinkering School After School: Middles

After SchoolSean Murray

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.

Bella and Jake practice drilling and driving.

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.

Jonah, reunited with his beloved 1/4

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!

Lulu and Jake start on the design of a ladder/stool.

The kids got right to work on solutions as different as they were creative.

Jack, Luca and Nik make a plan.

Stay tuned for more!
