My boys were super engaged because Thomas provided neat information in various forms - verbally, slides, video, tinkercad - and listened well when the students contributed by speaking up or typing chat or showing and telling!


I thought it was great - maybe include a short instruction at registration or in an early slide parents might see to set up the personal tinkerpad account?

Had a chance to work hands on with the class through TinkerCad.


Nothing comes to mind other than my kids want to attend more.

My daughter enjoyed all the information about Egypt, esp. the mummification video.


I (the mom) thought how to use Tinkercad was going to be taught. Is there a separate class for that?

Response from Museum of Design (MODA)

Hey Lee, thanks so much for the feedback! While the class was a LEGO class, students are welcome to use Tinkercad, Minecraft or any other medium they feel comfortable building with. We do offer a number of Tinkercad classes and camps (viewable on our website and Sawyer Page), and I will work on getting a Tinkercad Egypt class up for early 2022! Thanks and have a lovely day!
