Thinkering Studio Project Proposal


Title:
WildEyes Adventures Amusement Park
Member(s):
Bennett
Challenge:
My challenge will be to figure out the controls and figure out how to manage my park. This project is not just making rides, you have to make concessions, security, janitors and more. Also your rides have to go through safety tests so I have to make safe rides which will also be hard.
Learning:
I will learn how to manage my own area and manage the softy rules in my park daily.
HI will be challenged by making a safe environment for my visitors.
I will be stretched by learning how to play a new game.
Materials:
My laptop, Planet Coaster, the Thinkering wiki and a computer mouse
Main Steps:
  • Outline the main steps to complete your project or provide a link to another site that has the steps. Below the link explain any additional steps you need to complete.
  • How will you document your process/progress beyond your journal entries?
  • If this is not an individual project, how will you work together so that all are learning/working equal to their abilities? Roles? Accountability?
  • Which inquiry or design process steps did you include?(Or the Creative Learning Spiral)
Time:
How long do you expect this project to take?
Resources:
  • List possible resources/sources of inspiration to complete this project. Are there existing examples of the sort of project you want to complete? Has anyone else done a similar project in Thinkering Studio? What words did you search the wiki for when checking?
  • Who/what will be your "teacher"? (Outside expert, in class expert, book, video(s), website(s), Mr. Whitmer, experimenting, experience, etc.) Make sure your "teacher" is included in your steps.
  • How will you develop your PLN (personal learning network)?
Difficulties:
What parts of this project might be difficult? How do you expect to handle them?
How might your project fail? (Conduct a pre-mortem)
Sharing:
Sharing/Teaching/Paying It Forward
  • How will you share what you have learned/created/made/produced with others?
  • Who is your target audience?
Evaluation:
How will you/your group define the projects success? How will you know that your “good” is “good enough”?
How should we evaluate your success?
How will that be "visible" to others? (Demonstrate) Can your progress be measured throughout the project?
(Look at the Thinkering Studio Rubric for some ideas or possibly Rubistar.)
Design your own rubric.
“What are you making?” “Why are you making this?” and “Who is it for?”
