Rugby West Indian Association - Promotion Event

Create and Discover promoted 2 of the activities we can provide during the Rugby West Indian Association's (RWIA) Jamaica Independence Family Day.  So a big thank you to Lorna and everyone else at RWIA for the support as it is much appreciated.

Even though we had a heavy down pour of rain and hailstones 3 teams took part in our Project Management competition - Jelly Spaghetti.  The prize was £12 and each team had to be made up of 3 students aged 7 to 16 years.  Have a look of the 2 videos below.

Once the consent forms were completed as we were to record videos and real prize money was available each team had 10 minutes to build the tallest tower with the £1500 budget (monopoly money) and materials available.

The 3 teams were:-

A) Team Cool Runnings - Jacob, Coby and Devante (Team Leader)
B) Team Illusion - Xavier (Team Leader), Immogen and Tiana
C) Team RTC - Rhianna, Tristen (Team Leader) and Charlie.

Congratulations to Team Cool Runnings!  They completed the task and built the tallest tower.  The team leader worked really hard and also shared out the prize money with his team mates.  So great effort team Cool Runnings!

Also teams Illusion and RTC did exceptionally well as they did communicate their ideas during this task although Cool Runnings had slightly more communication during the building of the towers.

All 3 teams are more than welcome to improve their Project Management, art or science skills at our Create and Discover sessions at Benn Partnership Centre.

Watch these 2 video clips of the competition below and enjoy!
