Our new 12″ Build-It! Mini-Discs are so new that they are not even up on our beabuildinghero website. Why in the world have we decided to fabricate 12″ Discs when the 15″ are pretty darn great? First and foremost, the 12″ Discs fall into a shipping sweet spot and the resulting shipping costs are significantly less than our larger Discs. This ultimately allows you to build more for less. Does this mean you can’t quickly build a five story tower like sixty Austin, TX residents did last Fall? Will their less substantial size cause you to fall into an uninspired creative funk or to be any less of a building hero? Heck no. Last week 1500 children in Wisconsin used 2800 of them to build outstanding things and this week, educators in Ohio at the eTech Conference are using them to rethink the roles of risk and learning-by-doing in the classroom.
Thus far we can report no diminishment of spring in users’ steps or a preponderance of sad, uninspired looking structures. Quite the contrary.
