Today before jumping into tinkering with our hands, we started with an exercise to define for ourselves "what is tinkering?" and "why do we tinker?" We have some deep thinkers as well as enthusiastic builders this week!
The pinball team made lots of progress both on the support frame and the game board.
Our tinkerers working on the pinball cart have taken on some exciting engineering challenges, figuring out how to create wheel wells, supports for the axle, and more.
The connect 4 team completed the front and back portions of the giant game grid and learned how to use new tools along the way.
There were also some fabulous mistakes made throughout the day! We discovered that when we don't use two hands on the drill its easy to bend the drill bit and it can break off in the wood.
And our crossy road team has been hard at work completing lots of different obstacles including a raised train bridge!
So many opportunities to practice our cutting and drilling skills.
Tomorrow is our final day of tinkering with this awesome crew. Be sure to check out our final blog post to see how the projects all turn out! To see all our photos from the week, don't forget to visit our Flickr photo page!
