Being outdoors and having a blast with fellow peers and having a great time while knowing all the techniques and skills for canoeing and mountain biking is something that you gain as being a Douglas student. Being able to use ERIC in any public place, knowing how to be respectful, and using our own knowledge while being independent is something that is embraced during Douglas.
Teamwork and collaboration are two very key skills you need to use while sailing in groups of three’s, two’s or even solo. During wind, waves and water theses skills are developed and encountered on the water.
On the 22 of May a group of prominently 57 kids went to RAAFA to try and solve a problem, THis problem including delivering food to the residents. The food they were getting wherein plastic containers and were all mixed together. My group came up with the idea to create a car with heaters and freezers at the back to keep the food fresh, it would also include biodegradable cups and plats. The food would also be in certain trays that would keep them in order and reduce them from moving around. The car would be powered by solar panels that would reduce the amount of power used. We also had a budget that was $50000 but we luckily kept in that price range. Some groups got the chance to p9itch to the people at RAAFA with their ideas to try and see if RAAFA would use their idea.
