Thinkery Flying Pig Ornament
Perfect for: Anyone!
Have you noticed that we are a little crazy about pigs at the Thinkery? Concrete pigs, flying pigs in Innovators’ Workshop, pig scavenger hunt, T-shirts, and masks… What is the deal?
Using the cheeky humor associated with the “when pigs fly” phrase, we decided flying pigs help demonstrate how engineers design, test, redesign, etc. An obvious choice to use the concept to show this engineering process making flying pigs the best mascot for Thinkery.
This gift is the perfect little piece of Thinkery to bring into your homes this holiday season.
