TechBrick: Aug 27:
Climate Connections Table Element Building Session
On wed, Aug 27, both our FLL teams met to assemble the table elements for their tables. At the beginning of the session we did some of our communications exercises.
Then we rolled out the mat to oooh's and aaaah's. Then they delved into the table element assembly. Of course they used our cool pre-printed assembly instructions. Available here. After we finished the assembly we had the teams imagine what the challenges may be and sent them home to research the background on each table elements real-life counterpart. They also combed the board for the secret messages. A very subtle design element!
Even one of the Grandma's stayed and helped. Maybe we should start a SrFLL league!
This is always a great team building time and we work hard to try and make it a lot of fun.
