Everything you need to know about the Helicopter Rescue Challenge team building activity

Teams must work together to build a model helicopter as closely and accurately to the reference model as possible, whilst racing both time and the opposing team. The team who builds the most accurate helicopter wins the day and survives the incoming storm.

What happens during the Helicopter Rescue Challenge team building activity

Each team is then given a kit to build their vehicle.

One team member is then shown where to locate a reference model of the vehicle they must build.

However there is a catch, as only one member of each team is allowed to view the vehicle at a time, and must not touch the vehicle.

The member must then report back to the team and tell them what they saw.

The team must build their vehicle using instructions from the individual who reports back to the team.

In order to be successful, team members must work together and use effective communication to accurately build their vehicle in the fastest time possible. Using skills such as teamwork, communication, planning, attention to detail, and strategy, the team will be able to reach their goal and escape the storm.
