You don't have to leave Earth for stelar skill development

Help new teams understand what really separates groups from teams with Mars Surface Rover Team Edition, based on the award-winning Leadership Edition. It's a great way to introduce participants to the basic concepts of teamwork, which include interdependence, common goals, continuing interaction, valuing diversity, and creating a supportive work environment.

How the Mars Surface Rover Team Edition is played:

In Part I, participants are assigned individual tasks for building a prototype vehicle for ferrying astronauts across the surface of the planet Mars. These tasks are kept private from other participants and are completed behind a 4-panel screen.

In Part II, the participants are asked to complete the vehicle as a team, discussing ideas and sharing their individual expertise. At the end of the game, participants evaluate and discuss three key elements of teamwork: interdependence, communication/information flow, and common goals.

Participants will:

• Gain a clear understanding of the distinction between a team and a group

• Understand how their responsibilities are interdependent with those of their teammates

• Realise the importance of continual communication within the team.

Use the Mars Surface Rover Team Edition to:

• Develop new teams

• Rejuvenate established teams that have fallen back into group work

• Help teams in conflict understand the benefits of teamwork vs. group work.

A comprehensive Facilitator Guide includes step-by-step training instructions, answers to frequently asked questions, additional participant materials (reproducible), and participant handout masters.
