Filed under: Digital Trident Project

The morning we spent brainstorming ideas of how we could socially engage the residents of Trident house. Many Ideas were passed around, our main focus was how we could utilise a event Trident is hosting on bank holiday Monday. The likelihood of the digital village group attending is low so we had to look at ideas that we could implement whilst were not being present.

Below is a list of how we approached the task in hand and the directions were likely to head towards.

Marshmallow Challenge

The afternoon we had a training workshop that started with the marshmallow challenge to see how we worked as a team and our thinking methods. After the challenge we watched a short film by on the subject area show how everyone is different and has a different mental thinking plan. Technology Education Design have various useful online videos on such topics.

Our tower was the winning design, we went with simplicity over appearance and this paid off. With these challenge if you push the engineering side you can end up with nothing.

We learnt that the way you achieve the best results is with trial and error, using this method we can experiment with a vast amount of ideas and go forward with the ones that work out.
