The first year of working with a school involves trust and understanding building up on both sides. Our first year working with Saltley Academy was marked by three significant project that met with varying degrees of success.
Probability Adventure,created in collaboration with the Maths Department, was an attempt to build a resource that could be delivered by teachers across year 8 without an artist needing to be present. It used a narrated cartoon powerpoint to set probability based challenges to the students working in teams earning keys to increase their chances of unlocking a treasure chest at the end of the adventure. This project was over-ambitious for a first engagement with the school. We could have delivered it but leaving delivery to the teachers put too much pressure on them.
