Give them power tools! Sound crazy? At Tinkering School, their philosophy is that kids are a lot more capable than they believe themselves to be. Using real tools to solve real problems, kids have come up with some spectacular projects – from roller coasters to hang-gliders to huge abstract art pieces. The bigger, the better!
Sometimes the projects are also spectacular failures – but that is part of the Tinkering School philosophy too. To have the freedom to grow, they believe that it’s also essential that kids have the freedom to fail.
