And on Wednesday, the vehicle wash progress slowed down.

Wednesdays are a hump for everyone. Even for young humans who are building a silly thing out of wood! Today, our progress definitely slowed down, but it instead became about quality. There were tons of details about today that made it magical. Below are just a few of those moments. 

Henry and Spencer and Alessandra work as a team to make the head of the "vehicle". This team worked tirelessly all day to create all of these different parts, down to the facial expression!

Jack overlooks their afternoon design session. I told the Tinkerers that it was their turn to run things and that they had to figure out the next steps and communicate it to the team. This group took their contribution very seriously, and made multiple sketches before committing to a design.

Drew and Jack work as a team to add spikes to their fin design. The process took a lot of teamwork because the spike pieces couldn't be clamped and multiple hands were needed to hold them in place as they were connected.

The wash team works hard to attach supports to the walls. After yesterday's tip test, they definitely wanted a better design that will hold. After making one support prototype that worked, they teamed up to attach a support every few feet. With multiple people working on the same problem, the workload diminished and they were able to nearly finish the support system today.
