What skills were developed?
The students improved their professional collaboration as they had to work in small groups on their rocket. Specifically, we focused on developing the skills of delegating tasks and compromising.
Additionally, the students developed their attribute of spark and their problem solving skills. We focused on thinking of multiple solutions to a problem and considering which was the best solution, rather than rushing to a solution.
What the teacher says
"It was fantastic to see how much better the children were at working together by the end of the project. They were solving any disagreements much more independently and actively trying to reach a compromise themselves."
