Catapult your team to success with Chain Reaction – a fun and energetic team building activity!

Teams must design and build a freestanding catapult that satisfies a challenging brief. Combining bonus team challenges and resource management, teams must design and build their winning catapult within a tight timeframe.

In a high energy finish, the activity culminates in one of two Chain Reaction Finales:

Finale 1 – Launching from table to table, a ball must journey around the conference room until it (hopefully) reaches the last table within the set time limit.

Finale 2 – Each team fires at our giant target to score points. Highest score wins!

Chain Reaction always hits the target for high energy, fun team building.

Outcomes of Chain reaction Team Building Activity

Chain Reaction Team Building is all about bringing a fun and friendly twist to learning essential workplace skills. It’s customised to focus on key areas like communication, project management, and time management, but don’t let that fool you – it’s as fun as it is educational! The activity is packed with energy and excitement, and it’s a great way to gain some new insights into how your team performs. It’s an opportunity to brush up on planning, resource management, and problem-solving skills, all while improving communication in a time-sensitive environment.

It’s not just about the skills you’ll develop. Chain Reaction has a fantastic way of bringing everyone closer together, building trust and camaraderie across your organisation. It’s a brilliant antidote to the perils of working in silos and is perfect for getting different departments to work together more effectively. In a nutshell, it’s not just about having a great time – although that’s a big part of it! – it’s also about making your workplace a more integrated, efficient, and downright enjoyable place to be.

Great organisation to work with.

We had an idea of what we wanted to achieve for our All Staff Meeting and EML helped bring that idea into reality, in a really fun and engaging way. Thank you to all the team at EML too, great people who are so easy and lovely to work with!
