We went on an adventure today… All the way to the OJCS Makerspace!
Mr. Ray greeted us and explained some of the different leadership roles we would be able to try out today while building. We were given a bag of materials and told to get started. He reminded us that we celebrate mistakes and failed attempts! That’s how we learn best!!
Some of us figured out right away that the goal was to build a car… and some of us needed to work with the materials first. After 5 minutes of building, Mr. Ray showed us a short clip of a video to help us assemble the wheels.
We worked together, problem solved, and built cars!
“When I was making the car, the elastic band didn’t work… but it was still really really fun!”
“The hardest thing was when we put the elastic on the bottom because it kept falling off. I’m not sure how we will fix it, but I know we can figure it out!”
“I liked being the Lead Mechanic because I really enjoyed building stuff.”
Stay tuned for next week when we race the cars!
