Challenge: Participants work in groups to create a combination of different pyramids. They must cut the material precisely, calculate the resources needed, and build a structure within a given time. Participants color their pyramids with their interpretation of the Theme of the Event. In the end, they combine all the pyramids to form ONE colossal structure.
Results: Building a Pyramid is a powerful metaphor that all the small groups form a bigger unit once they are put together. Every role in the organization plays an important role.
Debrief: Big Picture Thinking, Visionary Mindset, Collaboration.

Enthusiastic participants form groups to build a giant pyramid like structure. Prior to that, participants have to gather resources for the effort and finish the task within the time limit. Individual groups build theme based pyramids depicting the event with distinct colors. Later all these small pyramids are joined together to culminate into a huge pyramid, that is the concluding step of giant pyramid challenge. Big Picture Thinking, Visionary Mindset and Collaboration are the learning outcomes of the activity.
The participants understand the significance of big picture thinking as they have to build relevant sized individual pyramids that can form a giant pyramid. Coordination, team work and common goal converge to accomplish the final task of giant pyramid challenge.
