Building the body of the rocket is just the beginning; after that you'll face the tricky task of ensuring stability during flight, overcoming the intense stress and G forces it will endure. Choose your materials wisely and fashion fins and an aerodynamic nose cone from the resources at your disposal. This challenge is about more than just reaching new heights, it’s an opportunity to collaborate, communicate, and unleash your collective creativity. Throughout the process, you'll discover the power of collaboration as you work together to master the engineering process.
You'll learn to troubleshoot, adapt, and innovate on the spot, all while bonding with your teammates in an atmosphere charged with excitement and friendly competition. However, the true test of your team's strategic decision-making awaits at the launchpad, the culmination of your hard work and ingenuity. Here, you'll have the opportunity to select the PSI pressure at which your rocket will be launched. Will you play it safe with a lower pressure, aiming for a controlled flight? Or will you dare to take the risk, cranking up the pressure to the max in pursuit of a greater distance?
With a resounding countdown, your rocket will spring to life, soaring skyward, leaving behind a trail of cheers and awe-inspired gasps… or it might just explode on the launch pad! So, gather your crew, fuel your imagination, and prepare to reach for the stars in our Rocket Science challenge. Embrace the chance to step away from the office and make the most of this opportunity to work with your team in a brand new environment. Engage. Explore. Excel. Let the rocket adventure begin!
Rocket Science is an outdoor activity (at least for the launch part) and requires a suitable lawned area at your chosen venue so is a great addition to a country retreat or away day. The setup time is 1 hour and this activity typically runs for around 2 hours.
As a standalone activity this can accommodate groups of 8 to 100. For greater numbers this can be included as part of a larger activity package or could be adapted to suit so please get in touch.
“I just wanted to say thank you for making our Team Building Day at Eaves Hall such a fantastic event. All the staff thoroughly enjoyed the day and I think I can honestly speak for everyone at Bender UK and say that it has been our best event to date!! The venue was stunning, the weather was glorious and we couldn’t have asked for a better day. Ben, we thought the team building games were excellent and it was great to see our staff not only working together as a team but having a laugh and enjoying it at the same time. I honestly couldn’t fault the day and even the more sceptical members of staff who said they hate team building, came away smiling. 😊”
