Navigate Project – An Alien’s Guide to Dining with Royalty

The final project in Stage 2 is called Navigate.  Unlike the previous projects, the final outcome can be anything pretty much you want it to be, as long as it effectively informs the intended audience about the given subject.

As a parent of young children, I’ve certainly spent a lot of time explaining stuff, answering questions and generally guiding them through their childhood, so hopefully that’ll come in handy.  I guess the main difference is that, that has pretty much been verbal in outcome, whereas this project requires something a little more tangible.

Brief: Research, develop and make an outcome that informs/ describes/ explains and navigates someone through your chosen subject. Imagine you are communicating to one of the following: an alien, 6 year old child, Aristotle, 25 year old poet from the year 3014.

So I have decided to go with the title –  An Alien’s Guide to Dining with Royalty

As part of the Queen’s remit is to entertain other heads of state, I think it’s plausible to conclude that if an alien were to visit earth, an invitation to dine at Buckingham Palace could be on the cards. Obviously this is much more likely if the alien is of the peace loving kind, so the guide will be aimed at aliens of an ilk such as the Na’vi from Avatar, the Coneheads or ET. 

As Royal protocol demands that issues such as etiquette are taken very seriously, I think this scenario will hopefully provide plenty of material and scope for the project.
