Teams explore the concept of a chain reaction and share the knowledge gathered from detailed game cards on how they can best work together. They then develop a plan to construct and test a series of simple chain reaction machines on their table-top before the fun starts - testing their effectiveness.
Next, teams must co-operate with others across the board to join and link their simple machines to the adjoining table tops. Utilising pulleys, leavers, and gravity, teams must create one giant, collaborative chain reaction machine. After testing and making tweaks to all the individual components in the room, the final reaction is triggered.
The most successful teams will have assessed the available resources, made a rough plan, and then throughout their construction, appraised and adapted that plan. This experience helps a team develop a common vision, a shared strategy and then put it into place.
