Multiple Line Textbox 1    "Hello, My name is Matthew and I am 11 years old. I am UBERSTIX4EVER!!!! I have build a lot of these projects and i love them! i am waiting for more projects to come out so i can build them. I think one way you could improve your site is, to have accounts. People could have accounts, and get awards (online awards) based on  what they have built. Maybe you can make a chatroom too! 

Thanks, Matthew"

Convergent and Divergent Thinking

by Dane Scarborough on 01/18/11

Convergence and divergence are ideal types, and not mutually exclusive, so we might agree that everyone has some degree of both. The values in formal education heavily favor "convergent" thinking, and in Asian cultures, even more so. The reason being that convergent thinking is what tests are designed for.  Now,  divergent thinking... how do you quantify that test, and how do you study for a test that is focusing on divergence?  You may have guessed that the answer is building with Uberstix and seeing how many other materials you can integrate into the project. It's more fun then coming up with possible uses of a blanket (although that can be interesting).

AeroForce Glider Tips

by Dane Scarborough on 01/02/11

Here are the keys to great AeroForce flights:

1.  The correct position of the wing is most important.
A:  The outer edges of the wing tilt up.
B.  The 4' indent indicates the front of the plane wing
C.  The plane must balance at that 4" indent
If you have those correct, you should have success that you can build on...
Have fun!
