Catapult



Catapul is a fun, competitive, corporate team building activity where teams use their creative brainpower and problem solving skills to construct a working catapult which, when completed, will launch objects for distance and accuracy.

Each team first completes a 10-minute, hands-off inspection of their materials, taking inventory and sketching an initial catapult design. At the word “GO,” teams will access their materials and start building a catapult based on their design.

With only 30 minutes in this initial phase to build and test the launcher, there is no time to waste. Completed catapults are put to the test during two separate launch phases, which truly add to the challenge of this fun team building event.

The first phase is the “launch-for-distance” competition utilizing a grid where measurements are marked in 5-foot increments. To share the fun and ensure full participation, we rotate team members through the various roles required to compete. At the end of the first round, points are tallied and the scores displayed.

The second phase tests the “distance-and-accuracy” of the launcher with team members catching objects in various-sized containers and at different distances. During this hilarious phase of the Catapul competition, the pressure to perform is high as each team attempts to maximize its points.

When the competition ends, the final scores will be tallied and the winning teams announced. This is a fun and creative high-energy team building event that will leave your group exhilarated, as the winning teams take the stage to receive their awards medals.

To ensure a great experience, aspects of these team building activities may be modified for your group size, group makeup, time available, and other variables.
