Does your team have what it takes to survive and escape the Red Planet?
"What would you do if your team was split up, stranded in space and on the surface of a barren planet? How would you organize your team to survive, eventually reunite and find a way home? Based on the movie The Martian, in this remote action activity teams learn how to solve problems with communication delays, find novel ways of collaborating, staying calm and focusing on solutions."
Participants will be divided into teams and tasked to solve a set of critical issues and scenarios related to a failed mission to Mars. Using only the resources available to them, teams must find innovative ways to communicate over long distances, satisfy basic survival needs (food, water, oxygen, etc.) and ultimately extract team members from the Martian surface. The team that successfully completes all of the mission directives within the time limit first will be declared the winner. To be successful, teams will need to manage their time wisely and tackle problems in order of their severity and time sensitivity.
