<< NOTICE TO AGENTS:

CONGRATULATIONS! YOU HAVE REACHED THE END OF YOUR TRAINING WEEK AND HAVE DEMONSTRATED YOUR TEAMWORK AND COLLABORATION SKILLS. YOU DID AN EXCELLENT JOB STAYING CALM AND NOT BLOWING YOUR COVER WHEN THE PUBLIC CAME TO THE "CAMP" TO SEE YOUR "DECORATIVE STRUCTURES," WELL DONE. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED. WE LOOK FORWARD TO CALLING YOU OUT IN THE FIELD WHEN YOU ARE NEXT NEEDED. END TRANSMISSION. >>

This was our final day of Week 5 of Tinkering Day Camp SF with the Senior Tinkerers. Everyone tried very hard, made mistakes and learned from them, collaborated and made friends, and built things bigger than ourselves! One of the best parts of this final day was that none of the project groups "finished" building their structure! This is great because it means that finishing was not the focus of the teams, which is exactly what we want - having a finished product is not what Tinkering School is about! We are proud of this group of tinkerers! It's been a totally normal week and we're not sure why we've gotten so many questions from parents and the public about what else might be going on. Isn't it clear that this is just a normal, perfectly average tinkering summer camp for kids? Nothing special or extraordinary was going on here this week. We give you our word! (wink, wink, nudge, nudge...)
