Boat Building Competition

So today in homeroom we tested out our aluminum foil boats, my groups boat: Noah’s Ark did not win the competition sadly but we came second. We could have won if we double checked out design and tested it out first but we didn’t get the opportunity to do that so we had flaws. The team building exercise was really fun and it allowed us to improve our communication and teamwork skills.

Advising Teamwork Reflection

Today in advising we did an exercise that included stacking cups without our hands. We were competing against each other in two teams, and this activity showed us the importance of teamwork and collaboration. If one person in the group has an idea but the group does not agree with it, than the group would waste more time discussing and not testing. So the lesson here is to collaborate well and accept each others opinion rather than saying how bad the idea was. One group would be faster than the other if that group was using the time testing ideas rather than just sitting around and arguing about it.
