In Flat Out - Chariot Challenge teams build a full scale Roman or Celtic chariot. Working from supplied plans, teams turn a ‘flat-pack’ kit of materials into the ultimate cardboard racing vehicle - machine and human-power working in harmony. The challenge concludes with a race, where the teams pit their chariots against each other in a test of speed and skill, or a gladiator-themed parade in an atmosphere to rival that of the Circus Maximus.
Chariot Challenge requires effective communication, collaboration and team dynamics to construct a chariot. Teams need to plan carefully and work as together to succeed in reaching their goal within the limited time frame. Teams use creativity and artistic flair to decorate their chariot so it stands out. The final race fuels healthy competitive spirit. Flat Out - Chariot Challenge is a fun shared experience that will be reflected on long after the event.
Teams were having so much fun they increased their team work, communication, competitive advantage and creative thinking without even realising it at the time until we reflected on the exercise and integrated what we had learnt back at the office.
