ARE THE BEST GROUP SIZES?
Best is with 2 to 10 participants at a time. The demo encourages
each person to actively think, contribute and be fully involved.
They are the scientists and space engineers, working as a team.
At every step, physical components are being touched, manipulated
or passed around
It has been done successfully on a stage, in front of a large
audience, with representatives participating. But, the special
learning experience most comes when groups are kept small.
For classes of 30 students, then, the ideal is to have one group
of 5 to 10 at a time do the demo with the presenter; while the
rest of the class works on other forms of curriculum, or is involved
with other hands-on demos.
