Deconstruction at Fidgets2Widgets


Have you ever wondered about machines and the mechanics that make them work? Well, our Widgetarians have wondered just that! So last week we took apart some notebook computers and other small machines. While one child carefully removed the screws, freed the battery, unplugged the RAM, explored and deconstructed the motherboard, another child read about the internal mapping on google. It was great fun. Tiny metal pieces were strewn everywhere, keyboards were reduced to toothless pieces of plastic with scrabble like alpha-tiles jumbled together on the table.  You have often heard us talk about how creative and constructive the kids are at F2W, but we’ve learned this week that “deconstructing” is just as important as “constructing.”
