This week students were given 6 cups, four pieces of string and an elastic band. In groups of 5, one student gave instructions and the other four followed these instructions to build a tower of 6 cups, without their hands touching the cups. The task was quite technical as the students had to remove from a tower to start and rebuild.
The year 11 form tutors were impressed with how well they worked as a team in the given 5 minute time frame. Some groups were able to complete the exercise twice, devising way to improve their working as a team, or other ways of completing the task with less string.
