New Year Adventure

The last one week was interesting .The kids (8 and 10 yrs) wanted a new project and I told them I could setup a free website for them to write articles. Their enthusiasm knew no bounds. We followed the Lean methodology Build, Measure, Learn.

This is what they did.










Out came some papers and a file.

1 They came up with a Name, Logo and a tag line. They resolved some conflicts here as they did have different thoughts !

Check out their initial articles Day@EruptingDolphins  and  Why Erupting Dolphins
