It turns out if you invite five really, really cool and amazing people into the school to teach the kids all about their passions of choice, you end up with one incredible, hectic, wonder-filled day.
The morning began with the deliver of a TIG welder on the back of Gever’s trailer for our artist-in-residence for the week, Brian Enright.
Luigi from the Exploratorium’s secret talent is sleight-of-hand and magic. He wow-ed everyone with card tricks and turning one red ball into two, and two red balls into three! He also taught the kids some sleight-of-hand with coins.
Shark, from the SF Rock Project, and his friend Dave, a park ranger and musician, came in to make Japanese flutes called shakuhachis out of PVC pipes.
Mackenzie’s musician friend Jeremy came in the afternoon to show the kids his collection of instruments from around the world.
Whew! A new record… five experts in a day.
