Changing Lessons by Changing the Scale

Dan Nellis, The EDGE Facilities Manager, will present Changing Lessons by Changing the Scale as part of the facilitation and programming workshop series at the 28th Annual International ACCT Exposition to be held February 1 – 4, 2018 in Fort Worth, Texas.

The large wooden Ropes and Rings Puzzle pictured below (photo 4) is an example of how Dan used his creativity plus design and construction skills to change the scale.  Using a Strings and Rings Puzzle of the same design made from a tongue depressor as a model, he made a larger individual version (photo 1) and shared it with a fellow attendee at last year’s Annual International ACCT Conference and Exposition.

Photos 2 and 3 show The EDGE staff engaged in creative planning of how to utilize Dan’s new Ropes and Rings Puzzle as a programming station for a team of 12.  This version will assist staff in facilitating the topics of problem solving, cooperation, effective communication and understanding different perspectives for adult clients and youth 10 years of age and above.
