About this team building
When you hear the term “chain reaction”, you might think back to chemistry class. But this is not about a scientific experiment, but about a social one. Let’s manage to work together as a large team (with up to 1,000 colleagues) so precisely that ultimately a tiny impulse is enough to set a whole chain of events in motion.
Everyone inevitably uses their strengths here, be it tinkering, coordinating, trying things out: with funnels, hoses, balls, kitchen utensils, pneumatics, catapults and even 12 volt motors. The colleagues work together to create a chain reaction. Several departments or even entire companies can participate. The group is divided into smaller teams, each with its own construction phase.
With a sure instinct and creativity is now tinkered and built. The greater the number of participants, the greater the skepticism as to whether the chain reaction can really work – and the more the tension increases in the course of the team event. Everything fits? Will all the links in the chain interlock? In the end, however, the feeling of togetherness is all the stronger when the last reaction triggers fireworks.
In order for the chain reaction to really work across the entire room, the teams have to communicate well with one another. Like in real working life!
