Tinkering & Inventing I - Ages 10-14

Develop problem-solving skills, curiosity, creativity and agency through making. Think like an inventor: create rules, then adjust them as results change. Use exploration, mistakes, and surprises to provoke invention. Incorporate some mechanics, electricity and unexpected materials. A series of short projects builds essential skills, followed by a group challenge and individual or small group projects. Each term is different, and students are encouraged to continue throughout the year.
