Challenges to success.

You are creating a product that transfers your internship experience into educational resources. Please describe the challenges and successes you are experiencing.

The largest challenge that I faced during this fellowship is the same challenge that I face during the school year. There is always a time crunch. The scattered obligations posed a challenge to spending time developing a focused product. Additionally, the material itself, engineering and wearable devices is very difficult to shoehorn into the state mandated curriculum especially when the assist center has a list of requirements and expectations for the lesson plans as well. It was extremely challenging to develop a lesson that meets the requirements of the state, the mentors, is feasible in the time available, with the resources available, that is still interesting and relevant to students.
