Creative Thinking Challenge

Creative thinking– A way of looking at problems or situations from a fresh perspective that suggests unorthodox solutions (which may look unsettling at first). Creative thinking can be stimulated both by an unstructured process such as brainstorming and by a structured process such as lateral thinking.

Students were divided in 5 groups. Different problems were assigned to each group. Learners were encouraged to think of creative solutions.

Problems are as follows:

Island fever: You are stranded on an island and you want to get home. There are many trees and you have a saw, some rope, three books, a bag of clothing and enough food to last a week. What will you create?

Pollution Solution: You are worried about pollution. You do not like the way the air often seems heavy and looks dirty. What will you create?

War works: You feel sad when anyone is hurt. You want to design something for the military that is useful but will not be harmful to people. What will you create?

Sweet sounds: You like music and think it would be great to invent a new kind of musical instrument. What will you create?

They reckoned, discussed and finally designed the solution for the given problem. After contemplating and evaluating their solutions, each group presented their idea in front of their peers.

Students enjoyed the session and involved themselves in an intense discussion, which enhanced their thinking and social skills.
