Do an Activity

 

Adding an activity to what would otherwise be a lecture sometimes feels like a stretch. In Workshop Open Mic, one of our participants was very confused as to how they might add an activity to a 15 minute workshop about the history of military submarines. At first I almost agreed with him–it felt contrived and awkward forcing an activity in there. When we demo’d the workshops, his was a ton of fun as he had us building small models of and guessing the shape of the first submarine and why it failed so many times. This was a great way to solidify the points and add so much engagement to an otherwise absurdly boring subject.
