  1. The peeps and I are completely in love with this site, my kids spent this am learning Scratch, last week it was all Tinkercad, my daughter has been making air compressed paper rockets and my son has gotten into silicon mold making.  Rather than parking themselves in front of video games they are choosing to make their own stuff.  They’d probably be doing a lot of these things on their own but having a portfolio space with tangible goals and commentary is super motivating and they love to see what other kids are coming up with. It’s empowering and affirming and it’s super cool to see them exploring skills outside of their comfort zone.

    I like the idea of DIY kids. As in “the kids who made themselves”. Reminds me of this video game Scrapland, where the hero assembled himself at a junkyard.
    The game sucked though.
