Today my youth work class at ICC unveiled their ‘mystery boxes’. The idea came from JJ Abrams’ amazing TED talk:
The task was to bring something which would intrigue the rest of the class but also enable them to learn something.
Mystery Box 1 contained 2 djembe drums and some ‘instructions’.
Mystery Box 2 was a geek paradise… Warhammer 40,000. Ross got far too into the game!!!
The final mystery box contained some reflections helping people to think about ‘Where is God?’
The three ‘boxes’ were all very different and challenging in their own ways. We all had a laugh and hopefully learned something new… even if it was that Sam never wants to play Warhammer again!
