Fifteen kids from the ages of 5-7 began their week in a small building full of wood and tools that they didn't know how to use. They were soon presented with two projects; a fence, and a dinosaur. In ever changing groups, the kids split up to start brainstorming with the Collaborators.
It's day four. Our last full day of building. The stakes are high, but not too high. The tinkerers understand that even if the projects don't get completed by Friday afternoon, they will walk away from Tinkering with crazy new experiences, awesome critical thinking skills, tools, and abilities, and most of all, a whole 'lotta fun!
On the third day of their arduous but oh most exiting building adventure, the tinkerers lift a frame onto a table to install a triangular support system on their Dino Fence!
Today we got started building! With ideas and plans bouncing around surrounding an enormous dinosaur and a fence/wall to keep in inside Tinkering School, we got to work!
