Toxic Crane

Description: Crane with 8 sets of pulleys that are fastened together at a center point in the center. Participants must work together moving the ropes as a group to achieve a task of picking up something with the latch and then move it to another spot. This element requires all of the participants to work together.

Set Up: A center rope will create a circle at least 8 ft in diameter on the ground to represent the toxic waste radiation zone. The larger the radiation zone, the more difficult the activity. Place the small bucket in the center of the radiation zone and fill it with water or balls to represent the toxic waste.
Place the large neutralization bucket approximately 30 to 50 feet away. The greater the distance, the more difficult the activity. All of the additional equipment will be placed in a circle near the circle

Special Instructions/Safety:

• The challenge is for the group to work out how to transfer the toxic waste from the small bucket into the large bucket where it will be "neutralized", using only the equipment provided and within a time frame. The waste will blow up and destroy the world after 20 minutes if it is not neutralized.
• Anyone who ventures into the radiation zone will suffer injury and possibly even death, and spillage will create partial death and destruction. Therefore, the group should aim to save the world and do so without injury to any group members.
