“One of the really cool team building activities “
The Actuator is one of our really cool team building activities. Competitive and collaborative at the same time. In this activity you will create and build sections of a machine that will trigger the next in line in a cascading motion. Eclectic props, dominoes, beaded strings, marbles. These rarely come to mind when you’re considering one of the team building activities for your organization, does it? However, the actuator is one of those activities where the props really don’t matter as much as the facilitation. At the end of this activity, your team would want more time and more props to build the perfect machine.
In addition to creativity, the Actuator also challenges you in project management, precision, working together, situational role play etc.
