Teambuilding Construction Activities
These activities encourage all members of the team to contribute their ideas and strategies to complete the construction activity. The most successful teams are those who collaborate and value all team memberís suggestions and contribute these ideas to the ultimate design.
SAND PRIX - SOAPBOX DERBY
Each team will construct a "Team Blimp" (similar to that of the Goodyear Blimp) to carry as much weight as possible over and across an expanse. Small weights must be attached and carried by the Teams' "Blimp" flying creation.
Given the same supplies, each team must construct a miniature ship less than three feet long to float with the most "cargo" on board as possible.
FRUIT CAR RACES
Each team will construct a miniature "fruit mobile" which will race down a large ramp against other teams' colorful creations. "Vehicles" will be constructed from assorted fruits and vegetables such as apples, bananas, carrots, toothpicks, skewers, and other delicacies. Creativity counts in this fun, creative, juicy event.
Team members construct a bridge to span an expanse with specified materials. This bridge is to be designed to hold as much weight as possible. The weight will be attached to the bridge to test the bridgeís weight tolerances. The team that constructs the bridge that holds the most weight wins!
