The Chain Reaction program challenges your team to create their very own Rube Goldberg creation!
The Chain Reaction program was inspired by a Rube Goldberg machine, a mechanical device that works in a complex way to achieve a simple task.
You will design your very own Rube Goldberg inspired machine that will perform one simple task in a very complex fashion.This program can work in two different ways: competitive or collaborative. First, you can be divided into smaller teams to create individual Rube Goldberg machines. You can also, however, choose to collaborate as a larger team to create one BIG contraption.
This program requires some serious cooperation and communication skills among co-workers in order to create these innovative chain reactions. Participants will have the opportunity to build communication, cooperation and troubleshooting skills as they work together to build a seamless contraption.
Annual events, corporate mergers, product launches or international teams integration events are the perfect opportunity for the Chain Reaction program. Participants can range in number from 10-1000+ and the program usually runs 2-3 hours.
Cooperation is the KEY to success in this team building program whether you take the competitive or collaborative route. Chain Reaction is a great way to strengthen relationships, get your creative juices flowing and put your strategic thinking to the test.

I’m Michael Carroll – business enthusiast, student and currently TeamBonding marketing and sales intern. This fall as part of my internship I will be focusing on increasing SEO traffic and analyzing sales processes. In my posts, I’m going to be sharing some of my young, but wise expertise and bringing you behind the scenes. I’ll be posting blogs on what goes on during these activities while using my observations to share my experiences. This time team building came to TeamBonding with ice sculpting.
I’m Joyce Ngo – public relations enthusiast, student, and currently TeamBonding marketing intern. This summer as part of my internship I will be focusing on social media and bringing the experience of the events and programs we do to the mass public from my perspective.

Basically, you’ll get to see what Joyce the Intern sees, no fluff. This week I went to a Versagility event.
