The Apprentice Project (TAP) Day One
After eating lots of cake, Meg explained about the project.( we all ate cake by the way, not just Meg…) She gave everyone the choice of an unusual and different water catcher (jar, vase, jug, bottle etc) and a beautiful personalised wooden label made on the laser cutter at Uni.
Meg has also made some lovely worksheets to fill in about ourselves
This special jar had a Christmas Tree painted on it. Wonder how much water will be in it by Christmas!
Everyone tied their labels on and we went for a walk round the site to choose special places where we could catch the rain. Each week we will measure
the level of rain in the jars.
The we worked on ideas about moving water with pictures of other methods used around the world
Ideas came thick and fast……Next we had to make a grand design of how we could build a piece of water moving equipment. There were some fab designs with working parts….
We filled in our worksheets which said loads about us….
and filled in the first week on the board with designs and plans for next week
and we put some recordings in the Sound Bank…
along with our names…..and some captured images on a disposable camera
Then we had the JamJarJury to evaluate the day, 1 marble for an OK day, 2 for a Good day and 3 for an Brilliant Day
Guess what – 3 marbles all round!!!!!!!! Hooray!
What a fantastic first Boot Up! day of the new season. Cant wait for next week…
