US Synthetics came and taught the 6th grade about PDCA which stands for plan, do, check, and adjust. PDCA helps you with daily problem solving. We did a project for PDCA and there were two rounds. The first round you built a tower using index cards and the goal was for the tower to be able to hold a package of index cards. The second round you had to follow the PDCA process and you had to figure out what would work or what wouldn’t work and whatever didn’t work then you wouldn’t try it again. Also, you would try and improve on your height you got for your tower. For example, my group’s first tower was ¾ in tall, but after we did round two our tower was 9 inches tall.  It was a fun presentation!
