What we have been up to!!!!

Week One:  On the job training

During the first week of our shut down period a majority of the students' time was spent doing on job training.  The students received training in the following departments;

- Building Engineers
- Programing
- Mission Mat Engineers
- Media Marketing Specialist
- Accountants
- CEO and CFO
- Researchers

During this time each department established a departmental driving question. These driving questions helped the students focus their learning and helped them decided which skills and training they needed to do their jobs.  Students learned that within their departments they need to be experts and share the information that they learned within their corporations. Students have learned that their role in their corporation is vital to the success of their project.

Within Corporations:

We have divided the students into eight corporations whose task is to create a robot that will assist workers during or after a natural disaster.
