This project is unlike any other project I have done before at Newington. It seems like it will be one that runs over the entire semester, meaning that it will be a long process to create this replica siege engine. The students will need a sense of planning and strategising over these months otherwise they will lost interest in the project. However, the project sounds like a lot of fun and the outcome will be worth the effort.
In this project, I think the biggest issue I anticipate to face will be losing interest in creating the siege engine. Since the project lasts for so long, we may lose interest since we may feel like we are achieving nothing in class. I also think that it will be a challenge for us to not use the technoloogies we could use, since we willl be creating the replicas as if we were at the time when these were actually created.
