We made so much progress on our projects today! The deep sea creature is starting to take shape, the coral reef has risen from the ocean floor, and the deep sea exploration vehicle has a control panel! As I floated around today, I got to help a lot of folks identify tricky problems in their design or plan, and try to work on solutions. I found myself mostly asking questions in order to nudge these budding problem solvers over the next hurdle.
Tuesday is our first full day of building, so everyone is always really excited to build all morning and all afternoon--the folks working with Ceili on the deep sea creature even asked if they could stay back from park!
As the teams started to move past their initial designs into serious building, some of them realized that there were gaps in their design, questions unanswered or components not accounted for. Will the roof of the submarine have a hole for the periscope? How are we going to attach the different size sections of the turtle shell so it will look 3D and people can climb inside?
All in all, a great day! High fives all around!
