spencershackleton83 TY students take part in this challenge. We had to overcome team quarrels between the different team members. Some had to take leadership roles and assign jobs and tasks.
In my group we all sat down and made roles so that everyone had a vote or a say in this project. We felt that this was the right way to start this project and finish it.
Check out Irish TV’s “Kildare Matters” coverage of our projects.
The Shackleton challenge was very good for developing a team and working in a group. It highlighted the importance of each individual in the team showing their strengths and also their weaknesses where the group could help them. Each group had a different challenge from protein bars to movies about Shackleton. This brought us back to the times of Shackleton and the problems he had during his time in the South Pole.
