Let Us Build

November 1, 2021

I love to take things apart and rebuild them. I see so many things.



NASA found out that many of their younger scientists weren’t thinking creatively and developing new innovations because they didn’t have a childhood of “putting things together”.

The scientists of the 50s and 60s had a childhood where they had to make box cars, take apart radios and TVs, and learn how to put things together from scratch.

A lot of our children today don’t have that experience, which takes away from their imagination and their ability to connect the ‘behind-the-scenes’ workings to what they see the item doing.

It may take more time than usual but letting your children join you with ‘putting things together’ will help their imagination, their functional agility and their ability ‘to see’ beyond.
