Outlining a project (even a simple project) requires learning.

A PROJECT is a well-defined plan of the set of actions, materials and human capital necessary to achieve a final result (objective) with meaning and value, whether for those who design the project, for the team or for other people.

Having to work on a project from start to finish helps to acquire and improve, for example, the skills of:

  • Note

  • investigation

  • organization

  • reflection

  • creativity

  • independence

  • leadership

and simultaneously stimulates team spirit and sharing, critical analysis, and the capacity for synthesis and public presentation.

"To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle, requires creative imagination and marks a real advance in science.” Albert Einstein
