The stitching group was a delightful threesome, Mahiti ,Vibha and I; joined in the last few sessions by Nikhit. They came, all excited about using the sewing machine; but after the first two sessions of exploration decided on projects and determinedly dived into cross stitch embroidery. While finishing the pattern seemed to take "forever" they soldiered on, enjoying creating patterns with colours. Finally on the last day the zip pouch and little sling bag were machine stitched. And Nikith had a decorated elastic hairband to create his ‘puff’.
As part of the tinkering club, we opened up many things. Displayed here are the circuit boards of the telephone, cordless phone and a smartphone. I found it interesting that the circuit board got smaller from the telephone to the smartphone but there are so many more things that we can do with a smartphone!
Then I played around with the focus ring and soon it went loose and I could unscrew it! Slowly I saw one screw...it was a star screw.One by one, and with some sawing we finally managed to open it up to see what was inside. We found lenses and mirrors.The lens and mirrors were so well protected, it took me 10 hours of working on it to get inside it!
Here's what Suhaan and Nikhil did...
