As part of the preparations for our opening day in a few weeks, I've been sharing some of the things we'll be trying out in the Tinkering Studio with a smaller group of explainers who will be dedicating more of their time on the floor with our group. We've been having weekly meetings where we alternate between engaging in activities as a learner and using our shared experience to reflect on aspects of facilitation in the TS like dealing with frustration, setting the mood, and asking the right questions. This past week we tried toy dissection together and I wanted to share some of themechanical components they discovered inside and some of the funny, creepy remixed mutant toys they created.
TJ and Chris starting messing around with their dissected toy and stumbled upon the strange and interesting music made by circuit bending
We're looking forward to trying this and other circuit activities with visitors when our space opens in a few weeks!
