Team Collaboration & Diversity
We faced many hardships during this competition
It was hard completing this competition, we had successes and failures, but we made it through. We all assigned each other work, and content. We would get a partner and take off working. Jaida and Zack are the journalists, they upload all the content, pictures and videos. Nyssa and Angel and the technology experts they make the power points and videos. Last but not least, Angie and Cristian are the builders, they built the windmill. We had some tough times, but we made it through because we know that we can all come to agreements. We would work like the wind, and finish the work that needed to be finished. And at the end, we all knew we had to gather up our stuff and check everybody’s work to win this competition.
“We would agree on some things, but we did disagree on other things like deciding who’s doing what. For Example: I wanted to do the Team Collaboration, but so did Nyssa so; we worked on it together. But we’re all friends and we came to agreements” – Jaida
“We would split up in two teams because there was three jobs for six people. But at the end, everything turned out great.” – Nyssa
“I think we did have arguments on some things, because we all didn’t agree on everything. For instance, I wanted to make videos, but I had to get the power point done. ” – Cristian
“I really don’t think we had any problems, I think the whole thing worked out perfect” – Angel
“We had very little arguments, like what blade design we’re going to pick out, and about the content, but other than that, everything was fine”- Angie
“Our had team some arguments but everyone has arguments, so I think our team did a good job”- Zack
By: Jaida and everyone’s opinion
Our team is working very hard to win this competition. Our school, is a very high poverty school, strangely, it doesn’t feel like it because our teacher write grants to win laptops. We don’t have the best software, but it still works, and we’re lucky enough to even have software. It was hard to find a coach because none of our parents are available because they work full time, so our teacher coaches all of us.
Our team is constantly going home and uploading pictures, content, movies, videos, and more. However, Cristian and Angel don’t have a computer to work on, which is a disadvantage. But an advantage is Cristain and Angel get to go to the library almost every day of the week and work on computers. Everybody else has a computer, but most of them are really slow. Some people in our class like Angel and Cristain are getting new computers to take home, so soon they will be able to post content, pictures, and more.
Mr. Wulff created us jobs, he gave them to us based on what we’re good at. For instance, Jaida and Nyssa are better at making power points then building. Right now, Nyssa and I are finishing the power point; we made a power point on windmill parts. Zack is better at writing then making power points, although he gets tired sometimes. Cristain and Angel are twins and their really great at building, even though they broke our windmill. But luckily, they fixed with some extra bolts. Angie, is good at building, her and Cristain are the builders, but Angel likes to help. Although everybody in our team doesn’t have a computer, we are still able to stay caught up in the competition.
