Activity
The idea for this construction comes from the universal genius Leonardo Da Vinci. Around 1480, he designed a transportable bridge that could be erected without tools. Important goals in team development create stability within the group and improve the ability to bridge gaps and overcome obstacles. Let your group face this  challenge! Leonardo’s Bridge will result in visible success that will promote team spirit.

How It‘s Done
The participants’ task is to construct a self-supporting bridge of 4 metres in length, using only the 28 sticks provided. No other tools may be used. After first brainstorming in smaller subgroups, all participants start constructing the bridge. The key factors for success are coordination within the group, creativity and sharing of knowledge. The result will be a self-supporting construction, which can serve as a metaphor for internal and external team stability. Another issue that can be addressed is how teams grow closer, for instance, in an intercultural environment. The participants start constructing the bridge, beginning at two ends. The bridge brings them closer together. In the end, the two parts of the bridge become one. The key factors for success are coordination, cooperation and adjustment (as  regards the method of construction) between the two subgroups.
