Let’s share our first workshops and the lessons learnt from them!
I think it will allow us to get to better know each other and it would probably help new ambassadors, as they could learn from our mistakes
I’ll start sharing my experience:
My first workshop was actually not a full-fledged one but actually part of our fluid dynamics course. When I first started being an ambassador I told my teacher about this and asked for her help(you might want to ask your teachers also, most of the time they are supportive) which she gladly provided, I showed her what Simscale is and how it works and she asked me to do my school project using Simscale(we had some mandatory projects for the end of the semester) and so I did, I used the slides provided within the program and cut some of them out so that I fit within the timelimit, at first the other students were not interested (they saw about 20 different presentation before mine, some good some not so good, so they got bored). I did my best to explain the Magnus effect to them using the slides and they really got into it, I was amazed! I just had the full attention of about 100 other students, my hands were shaking and people were laughing as I tried to spin a tube of paper to show them how it would work in real life, I never succeded in doing that, I was too excited.
What I learned from this experience is that people laughing at you is not always a bad thing and more over when you try your best and have confidence in yourself everyone is having a good time and learns something.
Anytime you have an opportunity to do something you are uncomfortable with, you better yourself and get valuable life lessons!
