  1. During today’s class, we got to work in teams in order to create the tallest structure with only a few items. I think that what stood out to me the most about this project was being able to put all 4 ideas together and it was an interesting process to analyze each others thoughts on how we should’ve gone with it. I think we could have done more doing and less planning and we could have been more successful in trying and failing, as we all learned towards the end. It was truly an enjoyable process after all, even though we were at the bottom of the list.
