Maker School is Underway!

Yesterday, Maker School broke new ground in Guernsey, offering kids the opportunity to get their hands on real tools and work on real projects.  We're making a steady hand game.  It's a fairly straightforward project that will involve measuring, sawing, sanding, wire cutting and bending, soldering, batteries, buzzers and playing!  We've got one more week before the end of term so I expect we'll all be done next week.

There were some great questions like "why don't we get an electric shock when we touch the wire?" — we all spent a few minutes working through that one before the answer was found.  Lots of good guesses and deep thinking involved!

It is of course early days, we're still getting used to each other and developing the idea of 'team' but it was a great start and everyone seemed to have a good time.
