We were back at Skills for Change on March 19 and as always had a diverse group of visitors. This time we had more children. They not only brought items to be fixed but also participated actively in the repair process with their fixers. They enjoyed spending time with other fixers too.

We are proud of how knowledgeable and patient our fixers are. In this video, you can see how Paul and Ed come together to help a visitor, Milen, figure out what caused her steamer to stop working. They discover the switch for the thermostat is the cause.

Watch how Paul and Ed work with Milen to think through what to do next. By the end, Milen is ready to finish the job herself.
