    A ride with team

    Christopher Columbus discovered both Americas when his actual vision was to prove that the world was not flat. He displayed great characteristics of motivation and goal oriented approach despite losing his track many times and landing in wrong places as opposed to his original plans.


    In Columbus challenge, the participants need to build a roller coaster that should be at least 5 feet to 10 feet big. This feat must be achieved only with restricted resources. It is a difficult task as all of them will have to go through a face-off with a demonstration. A brainstorming exercise is taken up by the teams to arrive at the size, width, and length, and base of the roller coaster. After the roller coasters are built, teams design theme based structures and present to the judges for the results. Creativity, First-time Right and Visionary Mindset are the three important outcomes of Columbus challenge.
