Wow! Can you believe we’re already a quarter of the way into 2010? Like they say, “time flies when you’re having fun“! Last week, we had our Bramble Berry quarter one wrap up meeting. We set new goals for quarter two, passed out prizes for goals achieved and built popsicle stick bridges for fun and team building (oh, and a cash grand prize). We were split up into two teams and had 30 minutes to build a 19” long bridge out of 60 popsicle sticks and Elmer’s glue (gotta love team building exercises). We let the bridges dry over night and had the final weigh in the morning. I could hardly sleep that night. Me? Competitive? Nah.
Drawing for prizes.
Here we are making a game plan.
This is my team’s bridge that came in second place holding 25.8 lbs of soap.
This was the winning bridge holding 85 lbs. of soap and citric acid. Their bridge was so sturdy, we had to scramble to find more weight to put in the hanging bucket below. Well played, team!
