Bob McEwen led the session essentially around a theme of thinking and problem solving.

Some of the tasks were theoretical thinking problems and Bob also introduced some of a practical nature .Working in small groups we began to use (initially subconsciously) some of the keys to problem solving including:

Communication:  Actively listening to each other: Analysing the problem/situation

Creativity: Dependability: Decision making and the beginning of Team-building

Overall it was an enjoyable, active and fun learning session.

We then watched a short video and a PowerPoint about Brackenhurst College which is now part of Nottingham Trent University. We are making a visit to Brackenhurst on July 21st for a tour a talk and lunch.

Next Meeting Friday 15th June

John Tedstone will be discussing Pollution with a focus on water, rivers and the sea.
