Chain Reaction

Inspiration Becomes Real. inspired by Rube Goldberg.

Program Overview

Rube was a true original – a Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist, he leveraged his engineering background to dream up wacky, delightfully overcomplicated machines. His unique vision inspired this, one of our favorite events for unleashing creativity and team collaboration. Chain Reaction Challenge is an exhilarating, high-energy collaborative team building event combining strategy, imagination, and plenty of hands-on action.

Split up into smaller groups, your team will be collaborating, designing, planning and building their own crazy contraptions. Success requires troubleshooting and clear communication, plus the ability to think way outside the box. The collaboration team building exercise also works very well with facilitated team development using tools such as Belbin, Myers Briggs, and DiSC.

Space Requirement

This program can be held in your office building, a ballroom or conference room. 20 sq. feet per participant is a good guideline.

Ideal For
  • Annual events
  • Corporate mergers
  • Product launches
  • International teams integration

Chain Reaction is designed as a collaborative AND competitive event where teams compete against each other by collaborating in small groups. We also offer a new overall collaborative version where teams all work together to form one large, cohesive machine.

In our collaborative version, each team will be responsible for the planning, assembly, design, and decoration of one portion of the large machine. Ultimately, in the end, teams must cooperate and communicate with other teams to connect their individual portions into one big, functioning machine.

In either version, Chain Reaction as a fully collaborative or semi-competitive program provides the opportunity to form memorable bonds and strengthen core relationships.
