– Steve Jobs, Co-Founder of Apple

The purpose was to engage students through a series of fun-filled activities such as Balloon race, Magic knot and Lava walk. These activities focused on honing team building skills such as goal setting, communication, coordination, collaboration, problem-solving and social relations among students. The participants really enjoyed the fun-based design of learning about teamwork. The audience was equally high- spirited and motivated the participants throughout the event.
