Harry Potter - Day 1 - Week 5 - Mark Day School

Gryffindor. Hufflepuff. Ravenclaw. Slytherin. Magic has arrived at Tinkering School and the tinkerers are no longer muggles, having learned the art of tools.

We started the day discussing our goals for the week and then met to talk about group agreements in order to set a framework for ways that we interact with each other and with the tools (e.g. "treat others the way they want to be treated."). 

Every tinkerer went through tool training to learn about and practice using clamps, cordless drills, and a chop saw. 

In the afternoon, we split into our build groups to work on designing the two projects for the week: The Hogwarts Express train and the Chamber of Secrets. If you're wondering whether Moaning Myrtle will make an appearance, join us for the big reveal at the end of the week!
