How would I make CreateAthon better?
This is a difficult question. I mean, already I think CreateAthon is great.
The only thing I could think to make it better, is set break times. Maybe it’s different times for each team, or an event game of kickball, but there should be some break times where we’re out having fun definitely instilled. Those small moments of fun help us relax, and in turn, help us pump out even more creative ideas.
Going without breaks, which I almost did, results in not as nearly creative ideas, as well as stress and tension. Neither of those are good with CreateAthon.
(also, honestly, I think students in high school would work better if they had a set time during the middle of the day where they could be outside and just go crazy or relax, just give them some time to not think about school, and then they’ll most likely be more productive)
Maybe it’s bringing back jump rope, or having a crazy coloring contest, sidewalk chalk even.
But with the large majority of us being creative, we definitely need to make sure we have crazy creative outlets that relate to absolutely nothing.
I wish we could help out more nonprofits during the semester, but already we produce so much work for the one nonprofit each team is assigned, but at least it’s awesome work.
