building and creating with various blocks. I noticed they were
configuring disks to create some unique designs. However,
their focus shifted to a very concentrated design of a round
object and then the object moved toward a disk that would spin.
Days of trial and error had brought them to a basic design of
interconnected blocks with one on the bottom. With just the
correct flick of the wrist, the disk would spin like a top.
They couldn’t wait to share their discovery. An epidemic occurred as numerous other students wanted to try their hand at creating a spinning disk.
But the story does not end there. A few days later, calling on previous learned knowledge of combining colors, the boys assembled disks of combined primary colors, and when spinned, a secondary color would appear! From there they continued to create a variety of awesome color combinations.
This had been no instant creation, rather weeks of experimentation and purposeful design. In this fast-paced world I loved watching these young engineers take the time to unfold this amazing discovery.
I can’t wait to see if this evolves further or if a new idea is going to bloom…
