Build a boat

About This Project

Teams are supplied with cardboard, tape and plastic, out of which they must construct a sea-worthy vessel, which they will sail in a regatta finale. Before setting sail on their boats, each crew must also create a presentation that showcases their atercraft. The presentation must include a briefing on the features of the boat, as well as a song and a dance. Judges award points based on this presentation.


Each boat must be seaworthy enough to carry two brave sailors who will represent the hopes and dreams of their team in a regatta finale. Will the boats sail to glory, or will they sink without a trace? Will the brave souls aboard find themselves adrift in the doldrums, or will they ride the wave to victory? This fabulous team event brings into play communication skills, group consensus and teamwork and will separate the Admiral from the Cabin Boy (or Girl!)


Collaborative bridge construction project with limited resources, communication barriers & strict timelines.
