(On the over head it looks like something is missing but we were just fixing the ride. This is an old picture. *It was the orange pumpkin ride.)


Passion Project Relfection

How did your entire project go?
What would you have done differently? What worked out?
The project went well, I would make it more weekly check ins instead  or every two so its not panicking to get things done.
How was the event?
Did the day/event go as you thought it would? What was different compared to what you expected? Were your expectations met and how?
Yes, it went how I thought it would or even a bit better I thought it would be much more chaotic but I got some good questions from many of the kids.
What would you do differently or keep?
What are your future plans with this project? Are there any?
I would rearrange the the library so similar projects were put together and use tables as blockers so there is a clear path.
How was the process?
How did your planning of your project go? Did you follow your plan? Did you have one? Did your plan help you?
We did have a plan that was fairly lose. It went okay but some parts took longer then expected as well as some short that made us modify the plan as we went along. Having a plan did and did not help it put a bit of extra stress on us but also kept us on track.
How was your presentation?
How did your presentation go? Were you able to present easily? Did you feel unprepared? Did you feel your project was captivating enough to grab viewers attention?
Presenting went well in my option, I could do it easy and felt well prepared and our project garbed a good amount of action. The only down side of ours is that our mechanics were not overly working the day of but we found a way around it showing more of the art to pull attain away from it.
