On Tuesday, March 7th, Concord Hill welcomed special visitors from Kaboom, the makers of the wildly popular Rigamajig construction set. Kaboom is a DC-based nonprofit, dedicated to bringing balanced and active play into the daily lives of all kids. They were interested in seeing Rigamajig being used by young students in our Makerspace.
Several Kindergartners and Third Graders came to the Makerspace to chat with the visitors and to work on our current schoolwide building project, a little house that may serve as a leprechaun’s cottage. Mrs. Opdahl and I enjoyed meeting other enthusiastic makers and even provided a couple of suggestions that might make Rigamajig even more flexible.
