Day Four - Beach Day

2013 Session 2 - MiddlesJoshua RothhaasComment

Beach day is one of the most important traditions at Tinkering School. Right as the projects get the most frustrating and creativity gets the most exhausting we, take a break. Occasionally relationships strain and tensions rise, so we take a break. Occasionally nothing is wrong at all, everything is humming along, so we take a break. The break isn't a reaction to tension, but instead a planned pause. Time to let the brain do its wondrous work. Sometimes the best problems can only be solved in the background.

But once the Tinkering starts, its hard to stop, and these kids keep finding new challenges and new ways to engage. Even a lazy day at the beach becomes a chance to bury each other, jump rope with some bull whip kelp, scale a cliff, orchestrate capture the flag and roll a several hundred pound log into a deep lagoon.
