The Ramp

The Ramp is a team-building activity that requires true teamwork where all members are accountable for the results. Participants must apply key elements of effective teams or they will not succeed.

Don’t drop the ball on this challenge!

Given limited time and resources and a clear mandate to follow, teams must organize themselves efficiently to build a ramp made entirely of straws, capable of transporting a ball a minimum of two meters by the pull of gravity alone. The catch is that the ramp is made up of multiple sections built by teams who have very limited communication during the construction phase.

Success is not a given

This is one of the most impactful team building programs because it allows teams to identify where they feel they are strongest and where they could improve (whether they successfully complete the challenge or not).
