I’m trialing these in the Makerspace today. Hot glue guns (and yes I use Cold Melt ones too but if it’s plastic on plastic the Cold Melt glue just don’t hold for long), are vital pieces of equipment, we use them most days. I have 2 stations with 4 guns operating at once, both strategically position so learners (and adults) can use, monitor and try and eliminate any unknown hazards. But alas yesterday was ‘our’ first casualty (you probably heard the extremely loud scream!), the burn was only small thankfully but a burn nevertheless. So this morning I queued at the supermarket for opening and bought these for just over $2 each. I’ll let you know how they go after today’s sessions with Year 3. I’m wondering if they’ll just be too big and they’ll lose their dexterity?
I wonder what the kids will call me, today one said "I'm looking for the Apple Teacher"......and another said "Are you Mrs Maker?" ......funny.
