{Video} Independent problem solving during Summer Trip Camp

This week at camp we were making pancakes when one of the guys spilled the bowl of dry batter. I got out the vacuum, gave them a talk on vacuum safety and stood back to see what would happen. I figured I would have to intervene, I was wrong.

This is what independent problem solving amongst kids can look like when adults don’t micromanage.

This warmed my soul to watch. I didn’t have the heart to tell them that the correct term is “suction”, not “suckage”.
