Final Prototypes from the Activity

Each group had a final prototype at the end of the class period. Each prototype looked different even thought the same materials were used. This aligns with assumption that the students can learn creatively and this notion is worth exploring further.

Mr Carminati’s Plant Cell

While the second class was working on their prototypes, the teacher felt inspired to create his own prototype of the cell as well. This inspiration is important qualitative data that shows that people want to get involved when other people are creating something and that the more people that can be involved, the more creativity can spark.
