How do you hold middle school and high school aged kids attention long enough to encourage team building skills?
St. Christopher's School brought in Experience Design track students from VCU Brandcenter to address the problem above.
We collectively thought of concepts, drafted a model, and constructed the See Saw Experience game pictured above. The installation debuted at St. Christopher's Leadership Conference which drew in over 2,000 attendees.
To play the game, the kids stood on top of the see-saw and worked together to maintain balance. A timer was then displayed on an LCD screen to log the time balanced. A buzzer sound was activated when either side touched the ground and was loud enough to alert everyone
nearby who was losing. This generated crowds of on lookers and a line full of groups of kids waiting to try to stay balanced.
The record for the day was 5 seconds.
