I appreciate all the students who took the risk and tried out for the KEY program!
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the D.I., it is a creative-problem solving program that is composed of up to 7 members and 2 parent managers. The children work on long and short term challenges throughout the year. This program helps build creativity, develops teamwork, and allows students to take risks and try all sorts of solutions to the challenges they face.
This is a hands-on program for children!
The adult managers are given tools and strategies to help develop teamwork, implement learning styles and talents,plus strategies of compromise and time-management that will assist your developing team. Adults MAY not get involved in the PROCESS of creating a solution as this is deemed "interference" and will penalize the team.
This is a hands-off program for adults!
Interference is a HUGE NO-NO!
"Teammate John knows his Grandma has a sewing machine and could teach the team or a few members how to sew. John then asks Grandma to teach them how to use the machine and sew. Grandma shows kids patterns, machine and teachs them on scrap material. Kids then apply this skill to making their own patterns and sewing their own costumes."
KID GENERATED IDEAS AND SOLUTIONS.
