What did we learn building our Rude Goldberg systems?
Perseverence – nothing worked first time.. Or second, third or fourth, but we kept going!
Noticing and planning- it was the only way to build progression in the system, little alterations made all the difference.
Reasoning and questioning – working out why things happened was the clue to improving our systems.
Then we could link techniques together.
Capitalising & Revising – all our systems were improved after sharing ideas with other groups and adapting their ideas into our own.
Collaboration – we had more success working in teams and working to our strengths.
Sometimes learning involves making a mess!!!
