Build and drive rocket cars – this is how the team event works
BITOU provides each team with chosen building materials for the rocket car building: wheels, axes, pipes, rolls, ropes, tubes and more. We also provide the tools, such as hammers, saws, drills, screws or nails. In this way, all of the required utensils are there for every creative rocket car idea, and the teams can completely concentrate on being creative and on trumping the other teams.
In small groups, the teams now develop ideas on how they can make their rocket car fit for a race. Stability and aerodynamics are thought through. And of course the design, so that the rocket car looks impressive on the strip. Then, the building begins.
After about 60 minutes, it’s time: the race begins. Ready on the ramps, steady – and go! Which rocket car will drive the furthest and trump the other teams?
What is a rocket car?
A rocket car is a vehicle that is powered by a rocket engine. In our case, the air pressure is built up using a pump – and the rocket car can be shot as far as its wheels will carry it.
What happens if the weather is bad?
Don’t worry: BITOU has an appropriate variety of team events ready, which can be played inside or online.
What do we have to prepare?
If you like, absolutely nothing: BITOU takes care of the presentation, briefs the teams on their tasks, delivers all of the tables and materials and can even take care of the location close to you on request – just ask us about it.
Is »rocket car building« appropriate for my team?
Rocket car building is particularly appropriate for a team event if you would like to focus on exchanges and joint activities. It’s about so-called »team bonding«. If there are particular topics you would like to work through, or if there are certain blocks in your team, we will happily recommend another team event with team building elements in a personal conversation.
