Loved:

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

Improvements:

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!

Loved:

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!

Improvements:

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?
