Today the boys co-op enjoyed a visit from a science in schools program offered through a local university. The task - build a solar powered car. It was a great chance for the boys to play around with Lego in a new way, and with a challenge for them to focus on. The kids all came up with some great designs to try out, and it was even better to see them shrug and go back to the drawing board when something that they built didn't work out as planned. By the end of the visit, each team had come up with a working design.
The afternoon put William into full Lego swing, and gave him lots of ideas as to how to use the advanced Lego kit we recently bought. He came home and got right to it, building for another hour or so on the living room floor.
