Tinkering with Glee

A fun TED talk by a fellow named Gever Tulley of Tinkering School on what happens when you give children access to real tools and a heavy supply of trust.  The immersive workshop is child-led though Tulley notes, “[we] keep the landscape of the projects tilted towards completion.”  The results?  “Gleeful calamity,” “sweet success” and occasionally a roller coaster built by seven-year-olds.
