A-MAZING! Design and construct large labyrinths that need to be operated by at least 4 people tilting it so a ball can roll through the maze—without falling into any traps! Each teams constructs a complex, 3-dimensional maze—limited only by their imagination. We have seen mini-villages built as part of these detailed labyrinths. After the construction phase, teams get to try the mazes built by the other teams. Lots of fun and surprises.
Mousetrap Car Grand Prix
This is a fun, spirited design competition and race that will have everyone cheering. Each Mousetrap car is built from balsa wood, plastic “CD’s” for wheels, metal rods for axles, construction paper for the body. The spring of a mouse trap provides the main power for the car, though we also provide other materials to make key racing modifications. Teams have time to build, experiment and make modifications to enhance speed and distance—before competing in very spirited races. This event offers great flexibility in terms of space requirements, venue and time frame so it can be done virtually anywhere – in time frames ranging from 90 minutes to 3 hours.
A fabulous group problem solving game that was designed to accommodate meetings that had only 60-90 minutes for an effective team building/experiential learning event. The activity challenges teams of 8 people to design and construct a tower out of cards and tape– that will hold the weight of up to 40 oz. of water resting on top of it. There are many pieces of information and specifications that need to be communicated and translated into tangible product. A debriefing session really helps crystallize the importance of the business skills that are being utilized.
Walking on Eggs
One of our most entertaining events! Teams are challenged with designing and making shoes that will actually walk on real eggs! There are a lot of decisions that need to be made as a group, including which eggs to walk on and what materials they can purchase or bargain for. A final relay race, where all team members must take turn wearing their shoe designs and walk on eggs caps off this fantastic event. The cheering can be deafening!
