Day one started with our students doing team building exercises, learning about where they have all been and facing their first challenge. As we opened the doors to our studio, our students were faced with one desk, one chair, and supplies to last them for the whole school year! Their first challenge was to create a proposal to present to us and a team member from Idiya, our maker space partners, reflecting the floor plan for their classroom. Their guidelines were to plan, prototype, participate and present their proposal. They were encouraged to break down their ideas into three categories: needs, wants and things they can build with our Idiya partners.
