The School:

Immanuel College is in their third year working with Enabling Enterprise. Previous Year 8 students have been busy developing their Enterprise Skills, each taking part in Operation Moonbase. Today’s challenge was a fantastic opportunity for students from the current Year 8 to put their Enterprise Skills to the test.

The Challenge: Operation Moonbase

Over the course of the day, students used their Working in a Team skills to establish a new society on a distant moon called Utopia. A series of challenges required teams to use their Enterprise Skills, particularly practising their Problem Solving, Using Imagination and Listening Carefully. Teams needed to select a crew to support them on their mission, then design a new species of animal to benefit society before finally creating a model of their own dream city. The day culminated in a series of persuasive pitches at the Intergalactic Trade Fair which gave each team the opportunity to show off their fantastic ideas.

What they said:

  • “The pupils have had a great day and so have I. It is great to see the pupils have time to work together like this and concentrate on how they do things, not just what they are doing.” – Teacher
  • “The level of discussion and debate has been fantastic. They really got involved, especially with selecting appropriate laws for their new society.” – Teacher
  • “I’m not that worried that we got less points than other teams, I’m really proud of what we’ve done!” – Student
  • “We stopped arguing as the day went on because we realised we weren’t getting anything done. Once we got on with it we were much more successful.” – Student

Thanks to everyone for such a great Challenge Day!
