A Team Building
Activity in the UK (United Kingdom)
Program Length: From just 1½ Hours to a Day or More
Great Blend of Fun and Learning
Set in the near future, teams compete and collaborate to make First
Contact with an alien intelligence that wants to test the human race to
see if we are ready to join the intergalactic community.
To do so, teams face a variety of tasks that involve their very own
robot (called Max, a mobile masterpiece with attitude!), cracking
intergalactic puzzles, learning and showing off their astro-navigational
skills, moonwalking and a whole lot more.
First Contact is a unique and engaging activity that delivers real team
development, great learning and in a package that is great fun for all
participants. Teams have to create plans that deal with expected and
unexpected challenges, tackle a wide variety of tasks to get a
competitive edge on the other teams, collaborate between teams to move
all teams forward and finally put their plans into action against one

for All Eventualities
As in real life projects, teams get the opportunity to plan how they
will go about creating a successful outcome. Each team receives nearly
all the information it needs to tackle the activity successfully.
However they are told that a few vital pieces of information will not be
available to them until they start to put their plans into action. So
their plans need to be flexible enough to cope with "on the fly"
Teams are in competition with one another, but there are some aspects to
the activity that require them to collaborate to ensure that the human
race is able to take advantage of this opportunity. The next chance may
be thousands of years away!
Each team's robot - all of them are called "Max" - is a technological
marvel and has real attitude. While some of the team get to grips with
Max others will be earning their team a head start in the grand finale
that will determine the immediate fate of the human race and, of course,
the winners of your event!
Some participants will be demonstrating new found skills in
gravitational mechanics. Some will be learning how to moonwalk and
trying to win a team moonwalking race. Others still will be building
their very own robot out of, well shall we say, less than ideal
finale is a great way to end the session as teams put their plans into
action and their individual versions of Max negotiate a complex maze
with the winning team taking all, with its team members becoming the
most famous in all humanity. Or maybe just taking the plaudits of the
other teams and maybe some prizes as well.
If you are looking for complete participant engagement and genuine team
improvements, you may just have found exactly that. Go on - ask us for

Resistance is futile.
