Team building can be a tricky business. It requires good communication and concentration. Recently attending the Brighton Science Festival, we challenged a number of teams to lay a stick on the floor without any team member losing touch with the stick, which was resting on their fingers, or hooking their fingers around the stick. A seemly easy task, it can prove difficult to accomplish. Small movements can cause the stick to rise rather than fall, causing confusion and disarray.
Here is a team from the Open University trying their hand at it, and successfully laying it to rest on the floor!
