Agenda & Activities
Welcome & Warm-Ups (5-10 minutes) Atlanta Challenge staff welcome participants and lead some fun warm-ups to get the group fully engaged in the teamwork activities.
Team Up! (5 minutes) Our last warm-up game will also randomly create small teams. Once in their teams, participants take a moment to get to know each other better.
Event Intro (5 minutes) The rules for the event are explained, and materials are distributed to the teams.
Design Phase (5-10 minutes) The teams examine their building materials and develop various ideas for what to build and how to build it. This is done as a separate phase so that conversations can take place later on about how the group shares, and hears, different ideas.
Building Phase (30-60 minutes) Teams build their catapults with one eye on creativity and the other on quality. Their catapult will earn points for creativity, quality, and how well it throws. This creates interesting insights into how the team makes decisions and executes their plans.
PR & Test Range (10 minutes) Each team brings their catapult to the launching area to brag about their engineering and creative superiority. They will then have an opportunity to do a test round and make improvements before the main event.
The Duel (10 minutes) Each team is paired up with another team, and attempts to fire as many birds as they can at the other team’s wall to knock down their pigs, while at the same time keep their own wall rebuilt while under fire. Final points are awarded based on the quality of their catapult, how much wall their team has standing, and how many pigs have survived.
Team Presentations Optional (10-15 min) The teams come together after the teamwork activities to share insights about what it takes to be creative AND effective, especially while under time pressure and facing stiff competition.
