Catapult to Success | Pumpkin-Style

By: Lauren Adams   |   February 22, 2017

It’s fall, and all fall-enthusiasts know what that means: it’s pumpkin season! Pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin pie, baked pumpkin seeds, pumpkin picking, pumpkin carving…and pumpkin team building.

peakWhen Peak Scientific got in touch with us inquiring about a team building program, we were in for a great surprise. They loved the idea of our program Catapult to Success, but thought to give it a little twist for the fall season – why not catapult pumpkins? Genius! This is the perfect fall team building activity.

We had a blast watching teams create their own catapults and launch pumpkins as far as they could, and they had a great time building and fall team building activitybonding with their coworkers outside of the regular work environment. Engineering, resource management, negotiation, creativity and out of the box thinking are all part of what makes teams successful in this event. Once the teams had put their catapults together, they were judged on the distance and accuracy of their contraptions. Using common household materials to build something that can launch a mini pumpkin is not as easy as it may seem, but this group did a fantastic job!

If you’re looking for a fall team building activity for your group, this is it. It’ll allow you to get festive, creative and bond as a team all at the same time.

Throw in some pumpkin-flavored foods at the end, and you have the formula for a killer fall-themed event. Hold the event outdoors in a park that has lots of trees for fall foliage viewing at the same time!
