Pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin pie, baked pumpkin seeds, pumpkin picking, pumpkin carving…and pumpkin team building.
It all started in 2017 when 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,
why not catapult pumpkins?
Genius! a perfect fall team building activity bringing a whole new meaning to the term smashing pumpkins!
PEAK Scientific had a blast with their team creating their own catapults and launching pumpkins as far as they could! As they bonded with their coworkers outside of the regular work environment, these scientists combined engineering, resource management, negotiation, creativity and out of the box thinking into successful catapult teams! Once the teams had put their catapults together, they were judged on the distance and accuracy of their contraptions. PEAK Scientific wasn’t pumpkin’ around! Using common household materials to build a launching mechanism for a mini pumpkin isn’t easy, but this group met their #SquashGoals.
One member of PEAK Scientific wrote to us afterward: “The event was great, and everyone had a great time. It was a good way to end a busy week with a bit of team building and a few good laughs. The facilitators were engaged and proactive…everyone did a great 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.
