planning a project

All the girls are putting their heads together for their project. What shall they do, what shall they do? It's crucial. It's their master project and required to graduate. (They could work on ones of their own, but aren't that silly.)

Now, I know exactly what they will do because it's plot-crucial. But as I write along, I realize that the first thing the heroine will do when another girl proposes discussing it is ask for examples.

You know, I didn't figure out what others did. Except in the generic sense of "some magical thing to contribute to the freedom, security and peace" of the place where they are attending school. I threw in "retrieve a useful magical object" and "devise a useful spell," but I think I will have to ponder it more.
