What is Problem Solving?

A range of problem solving challenges, some physical and some more cognitive all involving team work. Sessions can be themed and problems solved rewarded with points or items of equipment for a further mission; or money (special OE currency!) awarded that can be used to buy equipment for an end task.

This session is great for bringing new groups together or to explore team dynamics within existing groups.
