How To Play Team Architect
Will depend on what style of game you chose.
Team Architect is a fantastic team-building activity where you get each team to build something with very little amounts of strange materials. After the allocated building time is up, all the groups come together and the structures or inventions are tested. Ensure you know what is being tested - the strength, the design, the team-work, the creativity etc. - it can be as simple or as complex as you'd like.
The building challenge can be anything you'd like but we've listed some ideas here to help get you started:
Materials: packet of pop-sticks, roll of sticky tape
Challenge: build a bridge which will support a heavy book.
Newspaper Egg Support
Materials: a few sheets of newspaper, some string
Challenge: make an egg support to stop the egg from breaking when dropped from a certain height
Packing Peanut Tower
Materials: packing peanuts, toothpicks (optional)
Challenge: make the tallest tower
Tissue Paper Prom Dress
Materials: tissue paper, feathers and duct tape
Challenge: create a prom dress
Materials: newspaper, stick tape
Challenge: build the tallest tower that can also support a gold ball sitting at the top
