The Power of Teams
GAME
Straw Tower:
Build the highest possible tower from drinking
straws with the help of tapes and paper pins.
(60 straws per team)
Each straw is worth 1 USD.
It must be a free-standing structure.
Be creative!
You get 5 minutes to create a design,
and 15 minutes to build it.

Conclusions
Did you use any strategy?
Did you change the design of your tower
during creating it?
What aspects of the task you feel you
completed the most successfully?
Which aspects you would change
if you could do it again?
When was „teamwork” evident
in the group?
