The monthlong endeavor, assigned on Oct. 1, tested the children’s skills and abilities to apply critical thinking to produce functional, interactive games made from basic craft supplies. These projects immersed students — from kindergarten to fifth-graders — in the projects, with no involvement from their parents except for use of cutting tools among the younger students. Tedd Wakeman, founding leadership and educational architect at the school, said the projects “give kids an authentic audience, and feedback is the real form of assessment here.” “We want kids to create things in the world,” he added. “This is a hard project … they’re going to test it. It is a valuable process.” Parents in costumes manned the games while the students and guests visited the booths. There were 42 carnival games, including: foosball, a Rube-Goldberg-themed pinball game, Fireman Frenzy slingshot, Candy Throw, Levi’s Clown Game, Eden’s Ring Toss and Dylan Perse’s Hand Soccer. In playing the games, the students were given the opportunity to evaluate the success of their projects and those of their peers.
