A big part of outdoor learning is the ability to think outside the box to complete a goal. This session sees various scenarios and equipment set up around the centre, including colour coded and maze-based games, which groups will have to use their initiative to navigate through. Encouraging lateral thinking and problem-solving skills, pupils must call upon their teamwork skills in order to complete the challenges.
Block Crane – The whole group use ropes to move a crane to pick up different coloured blocks and move them to the coinciding marker.
Electric Maze – The group take turns to negotiate the maze and not step on an electric square, if they do they will start again.
Toxic Waste – The group must retrieve a toxic waste container without entering the area or handling the container using ropes.
Towers of Hanoi – The group must move five numbered tyres from one pole to the end pole (3 in total) and keep in the same numbered order.
3D Spiders Web – The group set their own challenges in order to get each member to navigate their way through a webbed maze without touching it.
