We saw great maker mindset in person when the laptops could barely hold on a charge — they had gotten a workout during the day — and the students went with the flow and flexibly swapped out laptops to make things work. That’s the kind of approach to life we like to see!
The popular stations this week were definitely toy take apart (with Ben this time as your mentor) and the Roominate kit.
Check out our makers in action!
M realizes that he can connect a motor from the Roominate box to some fluff left over from last week’s take apart. Not only does the motor attach itself into the fluff, it can actually twist it into yarn. Check out the video below!
Here are some things we are learning:
- It’s a new thing to use a screwdriver!
- “Lefty loosey, righty tighty.”
- Press down with the screwdriver while you turn it.
- The inside of toys can be a big surprise!
