In this fun challenge, teams have to build bridges between tables. They have to plan their project, manage limited resources and collaborate with other teams. But will their bridges be strong enough to transport a toy car to the next table?!
An excellent choice for corporate conferences as tables can be connected together with a network of bridges. Also works beautifully as a standalone team building activity.
We’ll begin by welcoming your group to the building bridges event, getting them into teams of 8-10 and explaining the aim of the game. Your task is to build a bridge that’ll carry a toy car from your table to the next.
But! There’s a catch. Your bridge must satisfy our complex design brief and be built out of limited materials. You’ll need quality ideas from the get go and good bargaining powers to get other teams to help you.
You’ll also get opportunities to “buy” extra resources from our shop by completing timed team challenges… but first, you’ll need to plan your build to know exactly what you need to buy!
Finally, the proof is in the pudding as we reach our thrilling final! Whose bridge will carry the toy car successfully across? And whose will collapse under the pressure?!
A great activity for getting those brain cells firing, Building Bridges requires project planning, communication and problem solving skills. Teams will need to manage a budget, overcome obstacles together and collaborate with other teams to complete the task.
This event can be adjusted to encourage friendly competition or large-scale collaboration. It can be used to determine how well teams work together and to highlight the problems of silo working.
“Thank you for yesterday, it was lovely to meet you both, and it was a great day. Lots of positive feedback and I think we really took a lot away, especially from the MBTI. We’re currently trying to find a space to hang our artistic masterpiece!”
