|Wind Systems for Pumping Water: A Training Manual (Peace Corps, 1984, 93 p.)|
TOTAL TIME: 1 to 2 Hours
OBJECTIVES: To present, discuss and evaluate the wind system and pump designs done the previous afternoon (Session 13)
To prepare for the construction
MATERIALS: Models, blackboard, paper, or any other visual aids as decided on by the groups doing the presentations
Overview of construction schedule of the remainder of the training program
Step 1: 10 minutes
Have each group present their designs.
Step 2: 10 minutes
After each presentation, review and discuss the presentation of the design. Ask for comments about the design and presentation process. Note on flipchart what did and what didn't work about the design and presentation process. Discuss this list in light of future presentations.
Step 3: 10 minutes
Then review the design itself, asking for comments and suggestions from the group.
Use this time to encourage design changes if necessary to prevent failure but allow people to make minor errors if you feel that they will learn from the experience and if these errors won't waste too much time, money or materials.
Step 4: 5 minutes
After all groups have presented their designs, post the schedule for the remainder of the training, pointing out how many hours of construction time remain.
Step 5: 25 minutes
Divide into appropriate construction groups and discuss how to get the most productivity out of these groups. Suggest that each group select a moderator or coordinator and that each group have a planning session at the start of each day. This facilitates tasks and planning construction.
