As shown in the 8 clips below Volkswagon and their research department at show that Technology and FUN can change people’s attitudes about things they don’t normally do or want to do.

A)  If you ANALYZE the videos, How could we incorporate more fun and come up with an experiment that we might be able to pull off here at school?

B)  If fun make people do things they don’t want to do and do them better, why are schools so resistant to fun?

C) If you remember the other fun theory things, which was your favorite? Piano Stairs, Bottle Bank Arcade, Deep Trash Can, Slide, Elevator, Shopping Cart, or Speed Camera Lottery? Why?

D)  Speed Camera Lottery was scribbled down on a paper by a regular guy.  For next year’s contest, what would you enter and why?

    a) we could add like a faster , funner way ti get to class and i bet no one would skip if we had hoover rounds to ride in .
    b) they think it will interupt kids learning and that is false , that will make us be more active in class and actually want to do work
    c) the slide is my favorite because it just seems fun
    d) i would keep the same thing but put it in america so more people can have the chance to win the lottery , and it will be safer here .

    A. A good experiment that we might be able to pull off here at school should be a seat that will bring us anywhere we need to go in the classroom. I think that is a good idea because teachers complain way too much about students getting up out of there seats.

    B. I think that schools want students to do things they don’t want to do but if we do something fun or an experiment at school’s maybe kids would want to do here work if it includes doing something fun or something that students haven’t done before.

    C. I think my favorite is the slide because it looks really fun. Also, it would be fun and easier to go places.

    A.) idk what we would do to make sch0ol funner, besides take away the work.

    b.) they are so strike on fun because they don’t think that we will get anything done.

    c.) i think that the shopping carts because it would be fun just to roll around a store.

    A) having pop in the water fountain, having gold carts to get from class to class.

    B) so we can learn and not have fun.

    C) Slide and the shopping cart because you can get down two floors quicker and have fun at the same time. Also the shopping cart because every time i go in the store i ride on the cart.

    D) I dont know have to think about it

    A.) You could do like them, and research what people like. We could figure out what people like, and in stall something that could be active, and that could benefit everybody.

    B.) Well, i don’t really know why. I think it’s because, everybody just expects students to do what there supposed to. I don’t think it’s really fair, but I do think that they think it’s just how things work.

    C.) Probably, the piano stairs. I think it makes people do the most. I think it helps everybody the most.

    D.) Um, i wouldn’t really have any ideas. I don’t know or even have a clue what I would enter.

    A) i don’t really know what might be able to be made for school to make look or sound more fun then usually because of right now i think that what we do in the school are not that fun because they have not that of many ideas for making kids or students get attracted to school stuff.

    B) i think that school is so resistant to fun because the teachers never ever think of something fun to do or some other way to do the work at school.

    C) i think that the elevator would be the most fun for me because it is way better then normal elevator and plus what it has inside makes me want to go and ride it because it looks fun to do. to me it just does.

    D) i don’t know if i want to enter it because it doesn’t look that fun to do just riding through a camera and getting your picture into a lottery.

    A) I think we could pull off the piano stairs, and that would be awesome! because it is sooo neat. But im pretty sure some other people could make new inventions up like something to help them pay attention.
    B) because schools have excuses for everything and only think negative and not positive and they say well this could happen and this and this, when there’s only like a 10% chance that would happen.
    C) the slide because i love slides and that looks so cool i rather do that then get on a elevator, escalator or stairs!

    A). i dont kno what we should do, there just alot of things i just dont know what we could do.

    B). they are because they just want to teach us and so we get a good education and they take everything serious and we cant have one laugh expect when they want to or something.

    C). i think the shopping carts because i skate and it looks easy and its faster transportation when you go shopping so is more fun,

    D). i would enter the shopping cats because every body seems to like it and its more fun for the fun theory in fun, plus its cool to use something lik that.

    A)I really don’t know. but we should come up with some thing every one will enjoy.
    B)I think that the schools only think that school is just for learning. but us kids need more fun to be able to come to school.
    C)I like the piano stairs was the best.Cause it made people use the stairs more.
    D)I don’t know i would have to think about it. I might put in some thing that will help the world.

    A. an experiment we could have done is we could have better seats that would make us sit down and we could have a slide that leads to the gym or our home rooms 🙂

    b. we couldn’t have fun with stuff like that because we don’t take care of any new things we get. we destroy them, but if its something fun we would probably take care of it cause we would want it to stay.

    c. the shopping cart. because it would be fun to ride around when your going food shopping , just to speed things up. plus it would make more people want to go to a certain store.

    d. i would enter the little car thing because it is a great idea, to have people follow the law and its not like there asking the government for money they are taking money out of what people owe from speeding tickets. i think it can win 🙂

    A.) The school could build a piano hallway like the one off the video that was on the stairs.

    B.) Schools are so resident to fun because the school faculty doesnt want students to come to school and just have fun because they want us to be educated.

    C.) Piano stairs because they were cool and they made a lot of people not use the escalator anymore.

    D.) I would enter the piano stairs because there cool.

    A-I think that we should be able to have Piano Stairs, the reason why i say that is because, I think it would make people get to class faster.

    B-Because they are trying to to make us do work and i understand that but if we had the Piano Stairs people would try to get out of class just to go play on them.

    C- I like the Deep Trash Can because, every time you throw something away it play music and it cool because, you get to listen to different kind of music.

    D- No because, I don’t really get what it’s talking about that why i say that.

    A.) We could get to class by motorized scooter that would be so fun because its fast !

    B.) I think because teachers think that will detract us from learning but that’s not true we would want to go to class and come to school.

    C.) The shopping cart is my favorite because the floors in grocery stores are really slick and it would be so fun and easy to get around the store its different because you usually don’t see skateboards hooked to carts.

    D.) I really don’t think i would do that because it really doesn’t seem that fun at all.

    A). I think we should have a couple computer teachers. Ones that look like robots & there mouths could be pencil sharpeners. And i also think it would be cool to have talking toilet seats & urinals. It would be cool if the toilet flushed on its own and it knew when you was done before you even knew that you was done & it should say “Thanks for using, come again”. And maybe like some flying trays that give you what you want. (Ex: I want pizza, and a tray with pizza flies out into your hands). And when your done eating, it says, “Thank you, please come again”. Oh, also, some magic school buses(:

    B). Teachers expect you to do your best, and be good so you can get educated. Kids will like school more if its more fun. (like my little ideers). (:

    C). I like the piano stairs the best. There cool, and when you walk on them, music plays like a real piano. I would never leave the stairs. I would probably slide down them.

    D). Im not really sure. But im sure if i sat and thought about it, something wicked and cool would come to mind. (:

    A I think the school should come up with a way to open up lockers faster without having to put in the combination. We should have like this e-ray system on the locker to open them. Every time we go to our locker we just put our hand print on it and it will open. But only our hand print will open it.

    B. School’s are so resistant over fun because they just want kids to learn all the time. They are so boring. School’s should let us do fun things sometimes. Maybe the kids wouldn’t be so bad and have attitudes all the time. And maybe the school’s are worried that we will take it out of hand.

    C. I would pick the piano stairs the best because it seems fun to do. You step on every stair and it makes noise. I would have so much fun on that everyday or all day until i got tired. I would just run up and down the stairs for the fun of it. Good exercise.

    D. I would enter in 100,000 because many cars had road past the lottery thing in like a week. The street seemed like it stay’s busy. So that’s why I would pick that number. It’s a huge number for about that many car to pass through.

    a) we just need ti make school funner and that will be OK we do have to do anything to school just make it funner
    b) because no one wants to be at school and work to we should make school and the work funner and not boring
    c) the sliding elevator because the elevator is to slow and boring so the fast red slide makes it better
    d) i would make that floor make sounds when people step on them and make them all colerful

    A.) The way that we could incorporate in our school and make a fun experiment is that we could do fundraiser to earn the money to do these things in case the school cant afford the things they would need to make the school funner and use these types of things.

    B.) They are probably resisting these types of things because they think the students wouldn’t be able to handle that type of funner equipment because they would probably try to ruin it.

    C.) The one that is my favorite out of the fun theory is the slide stairs. The reason those are my favorite is because it looks fun to do. And it would probably attract more people.

    D.) I think i would enter something more advanced and cooler but i don’t know what exactly what it would be yet. The reason that it would be more advanced is that people would get more attracted to it and they would think its more cooler to use.

    May 12, 2011 @ 11:28:44

    A.)An experiment that we could use in our school is that we can try the same thing they did with the trash can and more people will start throwing away things
    B.)that when the techer tell them to do something and they dont ot they make all of our activity more better then what they was before
    C.) mine was the slide because you saw less little kids do it and more big kids and parents do it and they had fun going down

    May 12, 2011 @ 11:29:24

    A) we could put some slides like in the video or do other things.
    B) because they don’t know how to have fun they just work and work.
    C) the trash can cause it looks cool when you drop things and it seem they take a long time to fall.
    D) i dont know maybey like donations for homeless people.

    May 12, 2011 @ 11:30:34

    A) i say that we should use a fun way to have people to do there work throw away trah and stuff. ? when we put our work in a suckshin thing and it just sucks up the work (cssslllepp!!!!!!!! (the noise) aha!:)

    B)because you do something that you dont normaly do

    C) the speed elevator because that old lazy was like hey now whats going on!

    D) i probably would do it because its kinda lame like i know you could win money but knowing luck it aint happnen

    A.) I think that we can incorperate fun in with a school competition like maybe a float contest and more stuff like that.

    B.) Schools these days are so resistant of fun because they try to get us to focus on how they want us to learn. Instead of letting kids make things fun for learning schools want kids to learn the way they want them to learn.

    C.) I say my favorite was the skateboard cart was my favorite because we can get around a lot faster when grocery store and stuff like that can lead to better things.

    D.) For next years contest I would enter something that would make people want to go out for exercise or getting exercise any way by making a publicly local dance game that is for free for any type of dancing.

    A: a better thing we should have is confortable seats because i think if i had a confortable seat i wouldnt want to get up . we shouls also do that thing that the boy did on his room make it stickie because some kids in this school are lazy but instead of hanging clothes we can hang garbage.
    B: school today is normal just work work and work thats it they think that if we have a little fun we wont be able to stay on track and learn and do our work well i think we would.
    C: the skateboard cart because we can go to place faster because now and days carts are very slow.
    D: for next school year i would recommend doing a police game because to let kids and other people to not do drugs and go threw a good track in peoples lifes.

    A. If they did it here at school I think it would make kids not skip classes, be here everyday, and actually want to be at school. like these things the trash it would make the school cleaner, the slide would make us get to class faster.

    B. They think it’ll distract us and it could be dangerous i guess. They probably think kids will use this (treat it bad) like wrecking it.

    C. I really like the piano stairs , it seems really cool/fun cause you can make music while walking.

    D. I would make walking fun like on the side walk its a trampoline,so you bounce.


    May 12, 2011 @ 14:06:33

    A) Instead of walking up and down the stairs to get back and forth to the first and second floor we could have a slide going down and an escalator for going up.

    B) Probably because students could not handle anything like the piano stairs because students might tear them up.

    C) Probably the Shopping Cart because it would be fun to skate around the grocery store. That would make people want to go grocery shopping.

    D) For next years contest I would enter a mini car that transports you from class to class.
