If you haven’t ever worked with middle schoolers, then you have never experienced the way that they see what will be.
Of course, this isn’t a problem. It’s a huge opportunity. There is that 12 year old that is imagining what we can’t. Another that is combining elements into something new we should have seen, but did not. It reminds me of one of my favorite sayings. “If you are looking where everyone else is for the next big thing, you are looking in the wrong place”
The reality is, None of us are born in to the world we live in
Working with 12 and 13 years olds teaches you to look ahead, to imagine what you have never imagined.
Are you ready?
