änergy Roadster can be deployed either indoors or outdoors.
The activity of transforming ordinary carton boxes into high-speed race cars unfolds in two main phases, which are the Design and Build phase and the Grand Race phase. During the Design and Build phase, teams are given the task of using their creativity to come up with innovative designs for their carton cars. This phase not only encourages creative thinking but also emphasizes the importance of collaboration and effective communication within each team.
Once the Design and Build phase is complete, the teams move on to the highly anticipated Grand Race phase. This is where a courageous colleague steps forward to assume the role of an F1 driver, ready to put the team’s creation to the ultimate test. The race not only showcases the physical durability of the carton cars but also serves as a platform to evaluate the team’s strategic planning and execution skills.
By engaging in this activity, participants are able to explore their creative potential and develop their competitive spirit. It is a fun and exciting way to foster teamwork, as well as to encourage individuals to think outside of the box and push their limits. Overall, this activity provides an immersive experience that combines elements of creativity, competition, and teamwork in a thrilling and engaging manner.
The änergy Roadster activity fosters several valuable learning attributes:
- Creativity and Innovation:
- Participants are challenged to think outside the box (quite literally) to design unique and efficient race cars. This encourages a culture of innovation within the team.
- Team Collaboration:
- The design and building process requires seamless teamwork. Each member’s contribution is essential, emphasizing the importance of collaboration and leveraging individual strengths.
- Strategic Planning:
- Teams must strategically plan their car designs to ensure both speed and stability during the race. This aspect hones participants’ ability to plan and execute a project effectively.
- Risk-Taking and Adaptability:
- The final race introduces an element of unpredictability. Participants learn to embrace uncertainty, take calculated risks, and adapt their strategies on the fly.
- Communication Skills:
- Effective communication is crucial during the design phase. Clear articulation of ideas ensures that the team aligns on the vision for their race car.
The änergy Roadster not only brings a sense of fun and excitement to the workplace but also serves as a powerful tool for team development, emphasizing key skills essential for success in a collaborative work environment.
