Try & Try Again
What does Gauri say at the beginning, and listen to her voice tone, that gives a sense of openness and encouragement to experimenting with designs? (Listen at 0:18)
What happens here that models the engineering process of observation and sharing challenges? (Watch at 1:02,:08)
Listen as Gauri says "successfully boiled the water" (Keeping in mind that they are doing a re-design at this point, so they have had a chance to rebuild a stove that might have not been successful in the beginning). What specific ways can staff make sure to celebrate successes and failures? (Listen at 1:58)
What did you notice specifically about the students during the redesign process? Did they seem engaged and eager to do the re-design? (Watch at 1:48)
How would you facilitate this activity differently? What would you do the same?
