Tournament of Minds
By Georgia aka Manu Manu Mítica (see photo below)
I decided to join TOM because I wanted a challenge and I like trying new things. TOM has definitely been a challenge but also a fun and interesting ride. At the start I was excited. Then when I got in and we first read out the challenge I got nervous and tried to back out. But Jeff my teacher helped me to stay confident and get back on track. After a week I started to enjoy it more. I think the team that was chosen is very good. They all have helped the team a lot and have come up with some amazing ideas. Next week we will compete/perform our long term challenge and also perform a spontaneous challenge.
TOM has helped me with teamwork and working in general.
Note from the 5/6 Team: Our TOM team will be competing at the Melbourne Metro Regional Finals on Sunday, August 20, at Deakin University (Burwood Campus). Their spontaneous challenge is scheduled for 9:20am and their long term challenge is scheduled for 10:40am. Come and support our team! You can read more about TOM here.
