Mission: Impossible 5 ….. Your chance to star in a movie
Four Studios You will be divided into four teams –Yellow Studio –Red Studio –Green Studio –Blue Studio Using the selection of coloured stickers… First come, first served..
Tool production Where are you going and bear in mind… What the Tool is.. –Marketing: Your slides should include: text, annotation and photos (movies) –Message: That helps Member Associations to break down barriers, so it is a recruiting tool for our target people (women young or both) –Time scale: One hour allocated for this.. Being a Surveyor is not…. Mission: Impossible
Your Mission… (if you decide to accept it!) –To measure as accurately as possible the area of a plot of land (defined by relevant coloured pins) and then subdivide into two equal areas. Using Old technology All in 50 minutes!! and then check it … using New technology All in 30 minutes!!! Or Less!!
The Mission - Field Exercise The following tools are available: Measuring Tapes Optical Squares Compass Ranging Rods NOTE – it is not expected that the exercise can be completed in the allocated time but a process of how the task would be completed is required. And afterwards we will do it the easy way to check your results!
The Mission – Define your Cast Director Camera Person Recorder 1 Recorder 2 Actor 1 Actor 2 Actor 3 Booker Computer Processor 1 Processor 2 Processor 3 Crew (capture the task) Actors (undertake the task) Laboratories (develop the results)
