Tuesdays are when we get ourselves into gear. Monday left us all revved up and ready to go, but we still need some practice with the drills and to make real plans for what we are really going to build.
The Escher Stairway decided to wrap their minds around regular stairs, before they tried to get really crazy. They began to build a stairway based on the models around our space.
The Magic Carpet team began some prototyping for the illusion part of their project, while others began making things to distract you!
The Stair Team finished two halves of the supports and then compared them to see if they would match up.
The kids decided that the first attempt wasn't up to snuff and they should correct their angles. Having them observe and decide on their own that the project should be improved is so great and it also gives them more opportunities to practice their tool skills!
The Magic Grow Room team had some kids working on furniture for inside the room and some prototyping the room itself, with kids deciding for themselves if they felt like building or hard thinking. They communicated with each other, so that there was always a few brains and hands on each team.
By the end of the day things were definitely coming together.
