The Eggs Games:
The Eggstreme Team Challenge
Team Tournament Program Overview
Teams explore new eggsamples of creativity in this lightly competitive and fun challenge activity.
Teams with from 8 to 12 participants design, construct, test, and launch egg capsules to a large bulls eye target. Teams also develop presentations that tout their inventions using eggisms that really crack people up. The program can be conducted either indoors or outside.
Successful teamwork requires that each team develop a creative system of devices, and that they communicate effectively among sub-teams that work on different aspects of the project.
Teams earn points the closer their capsule lands to a bulls eye target, and extra points for not cracking-up in the process.
Highest points in the pecking order go to teams that land eggactly in the center of the target area. Other awards go to those deemed eggxemplary in collyokialisms, and eggstraordinary design.
By the end of the activity will a team have something to cluck about or will some have egg on their face? Effective teamwork will likely make the difference! A debrief discussion at the end of the activity, led by the facilitators, links winning team strategies and behaviors to effective team practices in the workplace.
