Chain Reaction Table Top
A series of knock-on effects that transfer energy from one simple machines to the next culminating in an exciting finale! Participants are often amazed at what they can produce from a series of bizarre collection of items. Disbelieving looks are common when the challenge is first explained. They are then supplied with a set of detailed game cards and as they get further into the planning and construction they become more convinced about what they can achieve together as a group with a true sense of common purpose. After the construction is complete, triggering the reaction is full of suspense and excitement bringing everyone together in a celebration as they have worked together towards a common goal which they watch unfold before their eyes.
Successful teams understand the task, the cards, assess available resources, make a rough plan and then throughout construction, they appraise, and accordingly adapt and modify their initial plan. Teams work to develop a common vision, developing a shared strategy which they put into place by applying excellent project and resource management skills. Collaboration between the teams to share knowledge and resources is imperative to success and to extend the limits of creativity. In the testing stages teams learn to be persistent in the face of difficulty with an eye for detail in working towards excellence.
