When we bought our first MC, I took my wife to an empty school parking lot and just said, "Play around. Discover. Figure out what happens when you do this/that."

Then I gave her a challenge of backing across the lot and threading the needle between two signposts that were about 15' apart. I timed her first attempt, it was about 1'30". I said, do it under 60 seconds and we'll go for ice cream.

She did it in 36.

You gotta know what motivates your students.
