Subject: Tape of workshop 2
It has been a crazy day, and I missed both airings of the second workshop which I'd dearly love to have. If anyone has taped the workshop, please let me know. I'll be glad to send a blank tape if you want to keep yours locally, or I'll be glad to dub it here and return your tape. Of course I'll pay all postage! Please contact me either at my email address or by phone at 803-377-9224. Thanks to the angel who helps me out here! Sherri Cartee

The technology did make me think of maybe an after school club so that children could fully get into the use of the technology. It would be nice if all children could be exposed to such opportunities with short times of exposure at school. Last year my second graders worked with the sixth graders to create a rover from K'Nex materials that would be solar powered to travel over a simulated Mars landscape. The best part was watching many of the girls just observing how the gears worked, what happened when some things were connected, etc. It seemed that many of them had not had the experiences that I had had as a child with Tinker Toys and my own children with Tinker Toys and Legos.
