The second week of summer Tinkering has begun! We started the day by getting to know each other and making a group agreement for how we want to collaborate and tinker together throughout the week:

Next we did Tool Training to learn to use the drills, the clamps, and the chop saw!

After all of that training we needed to take a break for lunch and park time!

In the afternoon we had the big project theme reveal and the theme for this week is...... BEATLES INVASION! This week all tinkering projects are inspired by Beatles songs. The songs are: Yellow Submarine, Rocky Raccoon, Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds, and Octopus's Garden. We listened to segments from all of the songs and then Tinkerers went to brainstorm about building around the song that inspired them. We made plans in small groups and got to work!
