The Plan

Today’s challenge was anything but short of blind concentration. At first the real challenge seemed to be that the only person allowed to assemble the tower was blindfolded, while the other group members could only give oral instructions. However, the blindfold barely affected our team due to one of the most important aspects of this challenge: the planning phase. 

Planning is a key component in any project, and was definitely the most important part of the competition today. Creating a plan before construction began allowed our group to layout steps necessary in constructing a stable tower. The project plan permitted our team to be less dependent on ad lib instruction and more focused on the integrity of our tower’s structure. Today’s challenge exemplified how important a good plan can be when instruction is difficult to give.
