Scrapheap Challenge Team Building Exercise

Scrapheap Challenge involves a whole heap of scrap and lots of creative thinking. In this challenge, teams are tasked with building a product made of scrap to protect an egg when dropped from a height.

In your teams, you must build a product to protect an egg when dropped from a height. Each team will be provided with an equal amount of scrap to build their product. Once the time is up and their builds are ready for launch, each team must nominate one person to bring their build forward to the facilitator. The facilitator will then launch the item from either a raised height e.g. window or by throwing the item in the air.
