Pipeline Team Building Activity - March 20, 2006

Today, Adventure Ed walked down to Langley Marina. On the way down, Raymo and Katelyn spotted a whale swimming down Saratoga Passage. Each Adventure Ed. student witnessed the whale spout twice. The activity for the day centered around team building. Students split into two groups and were given a piece of pipe. Their group goal was to create a pipeline that would allow a marble to pass over all the pieces of pipe and down into a small bucket. Each group completed the task. In the reflection meeting that followed the activity, Guy stated that working as a team will be important for a successful California trip.
