We struck gold with this group in San Francisco this week! So, we're going to go deep, mining for precious nuggets of collaboration, effort and resiliency in the face of mistakes and failures. And we got off to a great start with tool training this morning!
After taking a break to go to the playground and eat our lunches in the sunshine, we got to find out what our projects will be this week: a tunnel, a boring machine, and a track and train. Evan told us a bit about exploring old mining sights in the Sierra Nevada mountains, which really helped the kids make connections to things they already know about the gold rush and California history. Then, we got to work!
Some groups even started cutting pieces of wood in the chopsaw room and putting things together! Wowee, that was fast!
Make sure to check out our flickr for many, many pictures throughout the week!
