Following a short introduction, we will split the group up into teams of about 5. Each team gets the job of building a real bridge! The material used is Knex; a technical ‘toy’ that is very good for making complicated and beautiful constructions.
Each team must keep to several rules and criteria in building their bridge. The ultimate goal is to link up all the individual bridges to form one big bridge! (You get the picture – the dimensions of all the bridges have to correspond in order to achieve a good result…). The success of the project is determined by all sorts of team skills and the presence or absence of leadership and creativity. The goal has been achieved when the battery-operated Knex vehicle drives over the big bridge.
Cooperation, project work, communication, group process, technology, logical thinking, creativity, managing and being managed.
