So much great stuff happened last week in tinkering camp... and there's still so much to tell and I'm still just so kind of busy... that I feel abjectly behind in my blog posts, so rather than stretching this out into some nice bite-size chunks I'm just chucking at least half the photos and videos that I have into this one post... I hope you'll excuse the confusion. I guess in a way it is perfect because it mirrors the happy exciting mayhem that is tinkering camp. We worked lots with motors, built some cool boats and drawbots out of electric toothbrushes... made a (soapy, extra-slippery-style) water slide, a rope ladder, and played with helium. Lots of interesting inventing went on on the side as well, of course... this device that you see Julia holding is an electric toothbrush enveloped in soft sponges.... it vibrates, you see, so you can get a nice massage as you wash off in the shower.
Such a lot of fun! And what an amazing group of young tinkerers.
