Exploring Senses x Oriel High School: Day 1: Toy Hacking workshop: 16th July 2014

Today was the first of three days of Toy Hacking workshops at Oriel High School. This is the first time Exploring Senses has worked in a school for three consecutive days focussing on Toy Hacking as the underpinning theme.

Day 1: AM session

We introduced the students to the wondrous creative world of toy hacking. All eleven students totally embraced the spirit of Toy hacking and made some amazing Toy Hack creations. Check out the images below to see what they made.

Day 1: PM session

The students started to make motorised toy hacks. I will post images of their final motorised toy hacks on Day 2.
