The School: Greenwood Academy

Greenwood Academy have begun their third year of working in partnership with Enabling Enterprise and have embarked upon another exciting programme of developing the Enterprise Skills of their year 8 students. Their year of enterprise was kicked off with the challenge Operation Moonbase.

The Challenge: Operation Moonbase

Operation Moonbase challenged the students’ skills in Working in a Team and Aiming High, as they were set the task of designing a society on a new moon. The students faced a number of challenges that also tested their ability at Staying Positive when their crew were in crisis and the teams needed to select new members to begin constructing the new society. Their ability to design and construct their society also became the ultimate test of their ability at Being Creative and Listening and Understanding, as they were given a range of information that helped them reach their final construction and be ready to pitch their ideas in the intergalactic space fair!

The Results:

Students clearly demonstrated their abilities at Working in a Team and prepared their pitches in a limited amount of time. Each team was tested at Aiming High, as they offered a persuasive and engaging pitch to sell their designs. Winning teams aside, all students challenged themselves to showcase their abilities and walked away from the day with a greater understanding of the value of Enterprise and their newfound strength in many of the eight Enterprise Skills. Well done, Year 8!

What they said:

  • “I am impressed with the quality of the resources that Enabling Enterprise offers and really saw positive outcomes in the students’ skills development.” – Teacher, Year 8
  • “I really enjoyed the activities, was proud of our design, and I now can see the importance of these skills for future employment.” – Student, Year 8

Well done to everyone who was involved.
