Team Building > Chain Reaction Contraptions
A celebration of creativity and collaboration, Chain Reaction Contraptions challenges team members to work and brainstorm together in a really fun way!
Teams design and build gravity-powered chain reaction machines using marbles, springs, pulleys, wooden tracks, dowels, pegboard walls and a variety of colorful widgets. Each team’s goal is to put their widgets together in a series of interconnected steps leading to a whimsical domino-style chain reaction.
Teams need to think creatively, test, tinker and manage their time in order to be successful. All teams must stop building at the sound of the buzzer. After the buzzer, it's time to demonstrate their contraptions! Teams will earn points based on how well their machine works, level of creativity, difficulty level, and overall “wow” factor. Members of top teams receive customized Chain Reaction Contraptions award medals.
This fun and impactful program brings together all the elements of effective teamwork: planning, brainstorming, leadership, roles, time management and delivering results that work.
Chain Reaction Contraptions can be run as a lightly competitive event or a cooperative experience where teams work together to achieve a whole-group goal.
