  • Approximately 2-4 hours
  • Requires a table for each team
  • Needs a space for the final race
  • Indoor or outdoor activities.

A fun and engaging business simulation that is beneficial to team development. This simulation can address issues for teams that need to focus on leadership, communication, creativity, team-working, vision, business planning and presenting.

Knex - The Great Egg RaceThe teams are set the challenge of raising the capital to finance a vehicle into a Grand Prix finale by means of successfully completing enabling tasks. Each team is required to design, build and test their Knex vehicle before the final race, however, teams will be pitted against each other, so they will need to be enterprising and creative to get ahead.

Each team is given an egg and a Great Egg Race box containing some basic Knex build materials and the ‘enabling task’ briefs. Completing these tasks will gain them further equipment or advice for the design of their motorised vehicle. Points will be awarded for a variety of elements including vehicle design, aesthetics, speed and an intact egg!

Exciting, fast paced and motivating, this package is a great way to re-energise your teams during a conference or to celebrate a business success. The challenge incorporates many of the skills required for high performance teams and facilitation of the learning from this challenge can guide and develop your teams towards a specific business focus.

Duration for this session can be two to four hours depending on number of teams competing and number of enabling tasks included.

The Great Egg Race is ideal for a conference break, stand-alone team activity, part of a larger team development programme. This package can work both indoors and outdoors.
