“There’s no point being grown-up if you can’t be childish sometimes.” - the Fourth Doctor Who Tom Baker.
I said, earlier in the year, that I was going to focus more on making school fun for the children through a couple of clubs that would develop their creativity. Well, the STEAM club are well into their first Maker project; the building, decorating and lighting of a Tardis.
After the pieces of their personal Tardises were printed from the 3D printer they began the jigsaw puzzle that awaited them.
Once they had successfully fitted all of the sides, the base, doors and top support in place they were able to begin the paint job using a (very realistic) Tardis blue colour.
Their most recent task was painting the roof of the Tardis, and once that was done they were able to place the "windows" inside their buildings before leaving the Tardises to set in anticipation for fitting the electrics when we return from the half term break.
Oh, and we're already thinking ahead to the second project. Big Ben is slowly emerging from the 3D printer in sections.
If you're interested, I'll be keeping a weekly account of how they do with each project here
