As everyone starts to trickle in, we start off our first day with some regular shenanigans. Kya, Isabella, and Caroline (a collaborator) team up to build the latest and most adaptable piece of high fashion: The Straw Hat/Dress.
Once everyone has arrived, we hold opening circle where we introduce ourselves and explain Tinkering School's three rules:
1. Don't hurt yourself or anyone else..
2. If you see a fruit and you want it, you should eat it.*
*Don't take fruit off trees.
3. All disputes will be settled with "Ro Sham Bo"
Right before dinner we go into our evening activity: a challenge where each group must recreate a structure based only off of one teammate's brief description.
After we eat, we walk up to the build site for some tool training! We learn how to safely use tools like...
The Chop Saw!
Finally we finished off the day with some homemade hot cocoa and whipped cream, tinkering school style!
