Problem Solving Skills
Big Ben reminds us of the Great bell of the Striking clock in London, which is one of the tallest clocks in the world standing at a height of 315 feet. Similarly, the activity is focused around building the tallest tower with marshmallows and sticks within a time limit.
In order to design a unique plan, teams come up with groundbreaking approaches and creative methods to make the tallest tower possible. Teams indulge in brainstorming with respect to major points like the base and upper part of the tower. Again, Big Ben challenge is tough due to its constraints of time and resources provided. Varied designs are tried out to accomplish the task.
Strategic thinking is the key to winning Big Ben challenge as the allotted time is less and the teams must shortlist a design quickly and get on building the tower.
Multiple iterations are inevitable in achieving this goal. Hence, teams acquire problem solving skills and exhibit their creativity to execute the task successfully.
