Think, make, tinker!

Like my previous post (and thankyou ako for pointing me to this), the Tinkering School in the U.S. promotes enquiry or project-based learning - through building (or "tinkering").

Providing the children with tools, materials and guidance, these young imaginations run wild and learn creative problem-solving.

Watch this presentation given by Gever Tulley the founder of the school to see some of what these kids came up with...including boats, bridges and even a rollercoaster!

As Tulley says: "Success is in the doing and failures are celebrated and analysed." As it should be.
