This was by far our best lab in my opinion. We did this fast, efficient, and we all worked together well. I was the ingredient person so I went up and measured all the ingredients out; when I came back to our station, my partner had already started mixing the dry ingredients. Within about 7 minuets we had already started cooking the pancakes with our entire group. A success was how quickly we did it, we had 25 minuets left once we finished cleaning up. I can’t really think of a challenge for this lab because everyone and everything were very successful, but I guess it would be how the pans were a bit too hot for our first batch, so we adjusted and turned them down for the rest.
It is extremely important to have good communication with your group members; if you don’t communicate how can you get anything done to a high standard? You need to communicate for timing, because if one person hasn’t even started mixing yet and the other person could be ready to eat. If one of your group members doesn’t know how to do anything within the lab, it could be a safety hazard if they don’t communicate that with others because they might not know that you don’t cook pancakes on 10. You could solve these problems by simply asking your group members if everyone is okay with what they are doing, and are aware of how to do it. Good communication looks like everyone in the group explaining what they are doing, and coordinating what they are doing with others in the group.
