(cowritten by Ana) Recap of last night's knife training:
Here at Tinkering School we believe that generalized trust is a good thing, and our threshold for that trust peaks at knife training. Knives are the most dangerous tool we train on, and also one of the most versatile. Therefore, they are taken very seriously. With knife training, each Tinkerer gets to earn their very own Opinel pocket knife after proving they are ready with the five rules of Tinkering School knife Training.
Wednesday is beach day. We load up into cars and head to Redondo beach. When you go to the beach and hand the camera off to kids you get... 778 photos on the SD card. Here are just a few.
We spent the day climbing, burying our friends, chasing waves... (not everything has to have a deep pedagogical purpose)
drawing in sand...
While relaxing and snacking near the cliffs, we get visited by some very friendly and very cute dogs.
Time for a mini-trip! Daniel takes a group of curious kids to the tide pools.
Beach day is for relaxing, yes, but it's also for making new friends and mingling with folks who might not be in your build group. Tomorrow we get back to the shop for two intense, refreshed days of building.
