Summary: Toshi and her friends love the activities that Teacher Tina plans at school. But when their teacher doesn’t show, it’s up to them to agree on a schedule for the day. The process the kids must go through to figure out how to work together without their teacher is analogous to the way a network of computers arrives at consensus on the blockchain without any of the computers being in charge.
