Catch The Ball is a fantastic exercise to get your groups thinking. With so many ways to achieve results, the group just must agree on a strategy and execute it!

Each group of 4-5 students should receive 12 drinking straws and 50 cm of tape.

The challenge is for the groups to design and build a container that will catch and contain a ball that is dropped from a height. a height of 10 foot can be easily achieved by standing on a chair.

Once built the group must place their container where they think the ball will land. The winning group is the one that achieves that gets the most balls to go in the container and for it to stay there.

You can either have three goes with a single ball, or to spice it up a bit you can have a go with each of the three balls.

Catch The Ball is an exercise where variables such as amount of equipment, number of balls and height of drop can easily be changed to suit your requirements.
