Kindergarten Tinker Time

During our weekly Kindergarten Tinker Time block, children are introduced to the Engineering Design Process. They help to define a problem, plan solutions, make models, test models, reflect and redesign.
During our weekly Kindergarten Tinker Time block, children are introduced to the Engineering Design Process. They help to define a problem, plan solutions, make models, test models, reflect and redesign. As students investigate, explore, invent, and create, they are encouraged to take risks and to view failure as a part of success not the opposite. Throughout the year, we also collaborate with First Grade as part of their STEAM Lab curriculum.  Moreover, we visit the new LS Design Lab to work on projects independently and to collaborate with Second Grade on cooperative challenges such as creating planters.
