The students are hard at work, tweeting and perfecting the focus models developed during the design day last Friday. Looking forward to seeing their presentations, and hear about their thoughts behind their work.
After the last model was presented we asked everyone to stand around in a ring. Then we were all asked to “Check out”, this we did by stepping out if the ring and say a few words about what we had learned and got out of these 5 workshops. One of the things that surprised me was that many of the boys said that the had gotten better at concentrating. I most admit that I didn’t see that one coming.
Another skill that many have received is that they have become better at building. Maybe working with their hands helps them relax and in that way concentrate. Let’s hope that this follows them through out their life’s.
