Even though the Tinkering School goals nowhere talk about finishing, it sure is a nice feeling to see a project through to its full potential. This morning it was hard to tell if we’d complete the projects or not. The structures were still in their beginning stages and so many people had differing ideas. We just couldn’t tell how it would go as we narrowed our priorities, while allowing each student to find their own interests on the project.
We had a bit of fun, though, as two of our collaborators introduced an improv game during morning circle. A box of props (pool noodles, ping pong balls, pvc pipe, etc.) was dropped onto the floor and tinkerers and collaborators were invited to pick up a prop and act out a part of the sea monster. There were many giggles and smiles as we shared our creative, silly sides.
