The Amazing Race

We cut down the number of questions and stops for the amazing race to six, as the teams had a long day ahead of them and only roughly 3 hours for the race.

The teams left on time at 8.15 in four groups, racing their way through our challenging clues. With good choices and communication, all the teams made it back by 11.30 in time for an early lunch, while the facilitators prepared for the debriefing and the afternoons activities.

The Debriefing

As usual, as part of the debriefing we made a presentation of all the pictures the teams took in the photographic challenge, and voted for the winning picture from each location. Then the answers to the questions were discussed and the marks for the race handed out.

The Afternoon’s Activities

The afternoon activities consisted of four games. We had two teams in the same location for all the games, but we varied the pairings so that teams were always playing with a new group of people alongside them.

Minefield

In this classic team building activity, the team must navigate a route across the minefield without speaking to other team members, and without of course standing on a mine! The game involves great teamwork, cooperation, strategy and support skills.

Helium Stick

Another team building favourite, with the participants working together to lower a stick to the ground, while the stick only wants to rise!

Don't Touch Me

The activity for creative thinking and continuous improvement. Team members work together to keep improving their team, hit their goals and think outside the box.

Toxic Waste

In this cooperative activity, teams plan and communicate a strategy to move a jar of toxic waste from it's starting location to a safe area. It involves great coordination, teamwork and collective organisation.

Flying Egg

Flying egg is a classic creativity problem and a great way to start day two. The teams enjoyed making their designs and strategy in the sunny grounds, and competed with each other to fire an egg the furthest distance without it breaking. It's all about innovation and working together to make a viable product.
