The purpose of the low ropes course is to teach small groups, or teams, how to communicate, collaborate, and challenge themselves in a safe and fun-filled environment. The low ropes course helps participants to creatively think and act, whether it be a sports team, organization or a group of co-workers.
Funding for installation of the course was made possible through the US Department of Education Teacher Quality partnership grant. “This course enhances Wesley’s learning environments and provides a valuable resource for community groups to face interesting and fun challenges which develop communication, critical thinking, teamwork and problem solving skills,” said Wesley College Associate Professor and Program Director of PE K-12 Dr. Pat Sherblom.
More than 30 people attended the ribbon cutting, including members of Wesley College’s Board of Trustees, members of the Alumni Association, Wesley Society, Central Delaware Chamber of Commerce members, Dover Mayor Robin R. Christiansen, Education Department professors, students, faculty and staff of the College and Wesley President Robert E. Clark II.
