Last week the Year 8 Challenge Program students participated in a Critical Thinking Day that was conducted with Future Problem Solving guidelines. The day was ably led by Ms Jo Cameron-Smith, our Future Problem Solving Coordinator. Students worked together to decide on a problem and its possible solutions using various disciplines. The problem discussed involved the appearance of the purity/impurity of Tokyo’s water in 2044. Students aimed to solve this problem through the use of various perspectives.

The students gave presentations of their work and posters at the end of the day, sharing their ideas with others in the group. This was a collaborative day involving critical and creative thinking to arrive at possible solutions to a future world problem. The students engaged well with the task and worked diligently on the day.
