Making Stuff Safer at Kensington

Maker Jawn Kensington acquired one of NOVA’s Making Stuff kits and the kids wasted no time testing the structural integrity of gumdrops and toothpicks.

Towering       Teamwork

The kids had a great time building everything from abstract, Frank Gerhy-esque structures, to stately 3-story homes with bell towers and courtyards. We learned that teamwork creates bigger, more awesome structures and that building things without a plan may very well lead to catastrophe!

The only issue with this project is the gumdrops are too tasty to stick around for long!
