Egg-drop challenge, making ice cream, and love from my graduates.
An egg drop challenge is a great way to use up mungo... and kids get SO excited about it. Let them raid the recycling bin and go to town designing a missile sturdy enough to protect their egg when dropped from a great height.
We also dissected a typewriter, made homemade ice cream (which makes children do a dance of joy on a hot day, or any time, really...), and worked more on our houses. Someone just really needed to install a tether ball in their living room...
We also celebrated everyone's graduation from tinkering class and strongly advised everyone to go to Maker Faire in the fall, continue to tinker in the months to come, and see you all next summer!
