TSAS Middles: Gutters Coming Together!

After SchoolSean Murray

Elijah and Jack fasten a gutter's wall to its (the gutter's) legs.

After having our ranks decimated by spring break, it was great to have the full crew back together for some serious gutter building.

Ruben and Jonah use the bandsaw to cut caps for the gutters' ends.

We had teams focused on mass-production of the gutters' stilts, capping the open ends of the gutters, and assembling the whole garbanzo. 

Almost there...

Sometimes kids are intrigued by the tools hanging on our tool wall, and want to try using them--regardless of whether that tool is needed for the project. And that's totally fine! Trying new tools is a way to "practice at learning"--and add a new skill to your vocabulary.

Soon we'll be building tiny boats to race in the gutters.
