Structural Teamwork at N.B.H.S.

The Jobs for America’s Graduates students at New Britain High School started off the school year with a challenge! The small groups of students were given a yards length of masking tape and string, twenty pieces of uncooked spaghetti, and one marshmallow as their structures’ final piece to stand strong at the top.

Seniors Ousmane Sylla, Myleisha Ortiz, Shatyln Caquias, and Deybrion Hamilton (seen in photo) demonstrated their skills by building the tallest, sturdiest structure. Throughout the activity, these students displayed and discussed real leadership qualities with their use of effective communication and creative strategies.

The students really proved that there is no “I” in team. As a whole, they worked as a collaborative unit and reached a successful outcome. The classroom competition added excitement and projected what is in store for the 2015-2016 JAG Program at N.B.H.S.
