Today was Day 1 of a 3-Day Winter Break Camp here at Tinkering School. This Break Camp is unique because we will have an entirely new group of humans EACH DAY, but the project for all three days is going to remain the same. The folks who showed up on Day 1 were able to lay the foundation of the project -- they designed and started the whole ordeal, only to leave the rest of the week's Tinkerers to learn about and add on to an existing structure throughout the week.
Yeah, yeah, that's all well and good, but what are we building?!
Oh, just a New Year Count Down Machine.
So far, the machine is split into two parts: a countdown machine and a streamer launching machine. In the end, (hopefully!) these two parts will connect and communicate and launch New Year streamers all over the building!
But first, tool training!
By the end of the day, neither team completed the project -- which is totally fine, because it's never a Tinkering School goal to finish -- plus, we have a new group of humans coming tomorrow to pick up where we left off!
