Tinkering School

If you've seen Gever Tulley's terrific talk at TED on 'Five dangerous things you should let your kids do' (if not: watch it here), you'll know all about the Tinkering School. It's an American summer programme that helps children build things. With power tools and soldering irons and all the rest.

The School's running again, and they're blogging daily updates. Yesterday, for example, they were making bristlebots just like the ones in this film.

Worth keeping an eye on to see what else they get up to.
