Project Development Activity!

How are you, I hope all is well!

This is the activity that our students really enjoy - the tower building activity!

The team leader is given £1,500 and has to buy materials to build the tallest tower between the groups! The team players help the team leader to build the tower - so how hard is that you might ask?

Well guess what - they have to use marshmallows and jelly babies! So they have to concentrate and eat off all the materials!

They are given 15 to 20 minutes. For some reason the shop keeper is a rip-off as they charge £500 for 20 pieces of spaghetti, £500 for 10 marshmallows, and £600 for 10 jelly babies!  All other items are £50 each!

This activity is considered to be the most challenging of the tasks for the students and so is the ultimate way to express how much they have enhanced their communication, confidence, and team building skills.

Have a look and enjoy!

Computer Workshop - Building a 2-D Computer Game!


Our second task was to challenge the students to build their own computer game.

Keep up the good work guys and let's see what we can achieve when we finish off these computer games!  Remember our motto - Touch Your Imagination: Produce Inspiration!

We had some fun and best of all I got to ask a very important question (although I did not realise this at the time!) - Q. Who is Steve Jobs? A. We don't know?!

So it is always interesting to hear what the students are talking about! Although funnily enough they knew all about the ipod, ipad, and iphone!!!

Keep on going students, you're getting there.

Take a look at this video and enjoy!

On Saturday the team have worked really hard to get us to this stage so big well done to you!

Although our students have worked even harder! They have shown that they are well on their way to becoming creative and confident, problem solving students, so a really big well done to the students!
