Learning is an experience
The “Rescue” is a two-hour active, diverse and challenging activity which emphasizes the idea of “everyone is in one boat”.
The teams receive appropriate equipment, a blueprint for building a raft and an explanation about the assignment as follows:
They will sail along the river where various intellectual and technical tasks will be waiting for them to complete at various points en route.
The execution of the tasks will enable the teams to purchase suitable equipment for the main task which is to build a stretcher and rescue someone on the opposite side of the river. This is the highlight of the activity (especially when it becomes clear that the ‘victim’ has champagne for his rescuers!)
