Corporate Large Group Activities | Catapult Build & LaunchOn August 9, 2019 by Raul Dinwiddie
Catapult is one of our many large group activities.
Here teams use their creative brain power and problem-solving skills to construct a working catapult, which when completed will launch various objects
for distance and accuracy. The task begins with each team completing a 10 minute hands-off inspection of their materials, taking inventory, and sketching an initial catapult design. At the word “go” teams will access their materials and
start building a catapult based on their design. With only 30 minutes in this
initial phase to build and test the launcher, there is no time to waste. Completed catapults are put to the test during
two separate launch phases, which truly add to the challenge of this fun team building event. The first phase is the launch for distance competition, utilizing a grid designed in 5 foot increments. To share the fun and ensure
full participation, we rotate team members through the various roles required to compete. At the end of the first round, points are tallied
and the score is displayed. The second phase tests the distance and accuracy of the launcher, with team members catching objects in various sized containers at different distances. During this hilarious phase of the catapult competition the pressure to perform is high
as each team attempts to maximize their points. When the competition ends the final scores will be tallied,
and the winning teams announced. This is a fun and creative high energy program
that will leave your group exhilarated as the winning teams take the stage to receive their award medals.
