The knowledge wall is a wall that can give people a clear view of what subjects there are and what categories they belong to. The wall has many shelves that we used paper to make, and on the shelves, there are many “ingredient”, which show the names of each subject and little drawings on top. And in the middle, there is a big cauldron.
In this case, the ingredients represent the subjects, the shelves represent the categories, and the cauldron can brew projects. When we started we wanted to make the subjects clear to everyone so they can understand, so we decided to put it on a wall. That is why it’s called the knowledge wall. First, we split into two groups to brainstorm about what the wall was going to look like. We had many ideas, like tree-styled, spider web-styled… But we finally chose the potion factory one which has many shelves with the ingredients on them and a cauldron in the middle.
After that, we made up a process that will help us learn while making the wall. The process that we made up is that every week every mentor will choose a subject and prepare a presentation and then present it to the kids. Afterward, Emily and I will make an ingredient by drawing a picture and writing down the name of the subject. Like when Nicolas presented Mechanical Engineering to us I drew a gear because in Mechanical Engineering you need a lot of gears sometimes.
We used this presses for all the subjects we could think of and finally, we finished the wall! Now it has main categories and countless ingredients! Even though we don’t have all the subjects in the world we still have many. Now when I want to do a project but do not know what to do I can go to the knowledge wall and make one up by choosing subjects and “brewing” a project!
