Prepare to take the plunge – The Speedy Interview Plunge!

Today, you will use your questions to interview 4 community heroes.

You will need to interview as fast as The Flash runs because you only have 8 minutes to learn everything you can from these super people!


Your mission is to collect as much information from these community heroes ask you can, as fast as you can! 


Check out today’s Adventure Plan and  join us on the video call!



What do I need to know about my community?

What If… I found out what my community needs and built it?


I will be curious because curiosity open windows. I will ask questions! 

I will be a co-hero because I am a part of a team. Together, we will be co-learners, co-explorers, and co-creators. I promise not to follow the counselors lead! I will follow my imagination! 

I will give respect. I will respect people, technology, myself and our ideas!

I will engage my “What if…” powers. This week, I will SQUINT. I will not SQUELCH! 


Would you rather…fight a 100 foot duck or 100 1-foot ducks?

Share your origin story.  Share a high, a low, a funny funky story, or an unbelievable unpopular opinion!
