School Workshop: Storm Patrol, E-Den Challenge

A hands-on team challenge for schools which gets pupils building dens together. It focuses on team work, communication and practical skills.


Workshop overview

Who doesn’t like making a den? This activity adds an Eden twist to an ancient art.

What happens in the workshop

Following some team warm-ups to encourage communication skills, pupils then consider features of shelters from around the world. Success requires the teams to barter and trade to acquire the materials they need to build their den. Their structures must comply with a number of criteria to have the best chance of becoming the winning E-den and of surviving the final ‘trial by storm’.
