Camille has been enjoying the free MAKE:/Google summer maker camp so far. There are daily videos (the first one featured Buzz Aldrin), projects to make, and weekly virtual "field trips". We had all of the supplies on hand for the first project, a (stomp rocket) rocket launcher. We used paper and masking tape, a 2L bottle, a used bicycle inner tube, some old PEX pipe, and duct tape.
3 . . . 2 . . . 1
. . . and jump!
One more video: it's still exciting launch after launch. Success!
Here's a couple more pictures of our unschooling summer lovin' from the last couple of days:
diggin' at the pond
calendula and beets in the garden
We've also been enjoying catching up on Cosmos episodes on Hulu, reading Amelia Bedelia, The Ordinary Princess (by M.M. Kaye), and Ronia, the Robber's Daughter (by Astrid Lindgren), rolling down hills at the park, building with LEGOs, participating in the library summer reading program, drawing and coloring pictures of mermaids, and eating lots of fresh garden salads and homemade hummus. Cheers.
