Further investigation

During the two weeks we worked on every second day a full day. The students were working in five groups of five to six students. Initially I didn't show the students any precedent, only a basic unit of four beams with sraight sticks of about 4x4 cm cross-section and ca 1.5 m length.

In phase 1 – principle, I tried to stimulate the students to observe and to prompt them to ask questions which would lead from one form to another using the given beams.
In phase 2 – exploration, I promted further questions pointing to specific issues, relating to the shape of the beams and the dimension of the structures, which were explored in small structures.
In phase 3 – investigation, I showed some slides with structures built by the students in Hangzhou and pointed out five interesting issues, which I asked the students to invesitgate with the intention to better understand the issue and possibly further develop the corresponding type of structure.
