Was your project meaningful?
Did this project matter? In what ways did it further your knowledge, force you to grow, or provide something useful?
I have never done a design project before, and I love to design things. It was fun to get to design something outside of a video game like Minecraft or Astroneer. I think that this project definitely furthered my knowledge in design and will give me some good life skills when they are needed
Was your project ambitious?
Given what you already know, did this project challenge you in meaningful ways?
This project challenged me a ton, I have never built or designed anything in real life before and this was a great introduction to it.
Was your project deep?
Did your project engage with powerful ideas or tools? Additionally, did you engage with the material in a deep sense (i.e. did you develop ownership over the ideas or tools)? Can you utilize these skills independently now?
Not sure how to answer this very well, but I believe am able to utilize the skills I learned from this project and apply them to real life situations.
