Kiddos in the K-2 grades have been hard at work in the design lab developing their design-thinking skills. They've been designing and building shade structures for bugs, and engineering tall structures using a variety of materials. We've talked a lot about the value (and challenges) of collaboration when problem solving, engineering and finding creative uses for materials. They've had many great successes, and learned a lot from failures, and are building an understanding of the value of rapid prototyping.
It's so great to see their young minds at work!
