Tinker School Time Challenge - 27th Sep 2017

Tinker School Time Challenge

Children have neither a past nor a future. Thus they enjoy the present, which seldom happens to us.

Hi Everyone,

What beaut weather we are having, I trust you catch a moment of the present whilst it is around. I am hoping that it will carry on into the school holidays so that we have the best days for outdoor activities. Planning is well underway for the programme of activities. We are aiming to include a lot of technology activities.

Tinker Time Challenge

We aim to engage students in hands on, meaningful activities that focus on projects, problems or play. Currently we are developing a range of time focussed projects. These projects are designed to be completed in a set time frame. These time frames are of 1hour, 2hour, 5hour, 10 hour and 20 hour duration.

In our experience working with tinkerers, many ask how long the project will take. Often students embark on a project without knowing how long it takes to make it, or they underestimate how long the project will take. By framing the project in terms of how long it will take, they come to recognise that time is an invaluable resource which is necessary to complete project work.

Check out our Tinker School Facebook page for ideas and examples of projects that students may enjoy being involved in. Otherwise they may have an idea of their own which they want to make.

Either way, the end result will be amazing projects that will continue to inspire and engage them in further projects.
