Proposal for PWC's Recruitment DAY

June 13, 2018

 

Thank you for thinking of The Cube for PWC's recruiting event on Wednesday, June 13, 2018. The Cube has developed a program that involves "play" while keeping adult participants in mind.

Our goal is to provide your prospective recruits with a break from lectures and presentations by providing a dynamic day that involves fun, team building, strategy, and some healthy competition.

THE OPTIONS

Below, we have listed two options that you can choose from at the event. There will be a total of 90 minutes available, divided into two 45 minute rounds. There is a PDF containing additional details attached at the bottom of the page.

 

OPTION A: Lego ROBOTICS 

In this option, participants are divided into four teams of twenty, labelled red, blue, green, and yellow. Each team will send ten members to participate in the robotics challenge tables' first round. The remaining members will spectate and cheer on their teammates.

The teams will be presented with challenges that involve a total of 6 destinations. Robots need to travel from point A to point B to accomplish each task. The first team to reach all six of the table's destinations wins. A bonus point is available for teams that complete all six of their challenges successfully.

The remaining group of participants takes over the tables for the second round and those that already participated spectate.

Points from the first and second rounds will be compiled and the team with the highest total points wins and will be awarded a prize.

 

OPTION B: LEGO Robotics & stop motion

In this option, participants are divided into four teams of twenty, labelled red, blue, green, and yellow. Each team will send ten members to participate in the robotics challenge table (see Option A for activity details) and the remaining ten members from each team will participate in the stop motion activity.

At the stop motion table, teams are provided with storyboards, cameras, and empty stages. Teams are given 45 minutes to create a story, build a stage, and create backgrounds. Participants must fill in their storyboards and build their characters before they can start shooting their movie. 

After 45 minutes, team members that participated in the robotics challenge move to the stop motion activity and team members that participated in the stop motion activity move to the robotics challenge.

All movies are submitted to the "PWC Academy," and a movie is selected for the PWC Stop Motion Award. Points from the first and second rounds of the robotics challenges will also be compiled and the team with the highest total points wins and will be awarded a prize.

Below, you can sample a stop motion animation created by one of our students at The Cube.
