This practical session sees groups getting to grips with building their own mode of transport from raw materials completely from scratch. Buggy building is a pioneering, team-building exercise in which teams must work together to build their buggy to withstand a series of grueling tests.

Teams will be able to utilise skills such as assembly, joining, and communication while putting their minds to problem solving and overcoming objectives. They will also get the opportunity to learn new skills such as lashing and tying knots. Once the buggies are complete, teams will present their designs and put them to the test!
