Join Alyshia for this ingenious challenge: toy dissection!
Pulling things apart is a really great way to discover how things work. Maybe you can even fix something that’s broken.
Follow the Think, Build, Test steps, to see what you can create.
Tinker and Create is all about exploring and testing new ideas. If you are interested in the Tinker and Create methodology, watch this short video.
See if you can find a broken toy. Look for one that has moving parts, makes sounds or runs on batteries.
Have you ever wondered what makes it work? Or maybe you wanted to try to fix it but didn’t know how to start? Alyshia will show you how to get started.
Before you can build anything, you have to do your dissection. And if you’ve ever wondered what a mechanical fish looks like when it’s inside out, you’re about to find out!
See the steps to follow as you pull your toy apart. See what you find and what it means for how the toy works. Did you find anything surprising?
Get ready for an ‘a-ha!’ moment or two – here’s where you can put together everything you’ve observed. Do you think you could make your toy work again?
