The first Theme Day for Port Elizabeth was held at St George’s College. The Mars One Project was captivating enough to keep 33 Grade 9 learners captivated for over 5 hours. After introducing the theme the Grade was broken up into teams and given access to the web site where they found a range of tasks with varying degrees of difficulty. The work had to be subdivided within the team to ensure that all the tasks were completed on time.
This was their first encounter of a process that involves progressive technologies and project based learning with a difference. Key highlights from this Theme Day included:-
