Use design to improve the cafeteria environment.
Susan Smith (Art) began with the terrific challenge video that she feverishly edited the weekend before launch. It featured graphic documentary evidence of our cafeteria's present plight, but also depicted inspiring designs which teased at possibilities. Then Carol Shea (Language) clearly explained the approach of the project. Finally, Cathy Riley (Science) started exploring the challenge with the students.
The entire event was documented on video. The team intends to make its experience transparent and hopes to demonstrate the value of CBL. By the next meeting students were already recording reflections on their iPod touches. I truly found myself lifted by their launch.
L to R - Cathy, Carol, and Susan challenge their minions.
