On Sunday November 17, the CIS 300 Project Management Class taught a local Girl Scout troop how to program Lego Mindstorm robots. The girl scouts competed in teams to successfully navigate a course set out on a track.
The project management students had been planning this event all semester. Students developed project documents such as a Project Charter, a Work Breakdown Structure, and a Time Schedule. Before the event, the project management students worked out the bugs with two test runs.
The Girl Scouts were excited, and Simpson students applied what they learned in Project Management class. This was great hands-on learning for collaborative leadership, and a service to the community.
