Jakob metzger still has to perform in front of an audience and a jury. "I am excited", he confesses shortly before. Jakob attends the ninth grade of the montessori school in forchheim and graduates this year. Learning under pressure does not really exist in montessori pedagogy. Nevertheless, the tension on this special day can be felt among the youths. "That’s normal, too", jakob appeases.
He belongs to those 19 students, the graduating class, who now have their "rough work" – this is the name of the final exam – presented to the public in the auditorium of the herder high school. The schoolchildren had three quarters of a year to complete their projects. The respective topic could be chosen freely by the participants. Jakob weib pretty much everything there is to know about skateboards. So it was almost obvious that the schoolboy made a so-called longboard. "This is the original shape of the skateboard", jakob explains.
