Chain reaction teambuilding
The chain reaction program was inspired by the Rube Goldberg machine, a mechanical device that works in a complex way to achieve a simple task.
In groups of 6-8 people, you and your team mates will design your own Rube Goldberg-inspired machine that performs a simple task in a very complex way. This program can work in two different ways: competitive or collaborative. First, you are subdivided into smaller teams to create individual Rube Goldberg machines. However, you can also choose to work together in a larger team to make a BIG one.
This program requires some serious collaboration and communication skills between employees to create the innovative chain reactions. Participants are given the opportunity to build communication, collaboration, and troubleshooting skills while working together to build a seamless device.
Annual events, corporate mergers, department outing, product introductions or international team integration events are the perfect opportunity for the chain reaction program. Participants can range from 10-5000 and the program takes approximately 75 minutes to 90 minutes.
Collaboration is the key to success in this team building program, whether you take a competitive or collaborative route. Chain reaction is a great way to strengthen relationships, to let creativity flow and to test strategic thinking.
