About the Event
We jokingly refer to the class as the “Kobayashi Maru” class. We begin by orienting everyone to the welding equipment.
We cover safety in detail so that no one will be anxious, as welding is actually much safer than driving or working in a kitchen.
The group will have about 30-45 minutes to work with scrap materials and become familiar with the machines. We then break the group into two teams. Teams are given 20 minutes to design a “bridge” that must meet specific criteria. Teams are given about an hour to construct the “bridge”. The bridge is then tested under load until failure, meaning we crush it. The success of each group is based on the load supported (divided by) the mass of material used in construction. Values are compared, the higher value (better load to mass ratio) wins!!! The twisted wreckage is available as a grisly trophy.
As a new feature we have begun tracking the data of our clients so that, if you choose to, your team can try to beat the best scores of companies like Microsoft, Google, Adobe, Godaddy, Amazon, Oculus, Facebook, Vulcan, Boston Consulting Group, and Linkedin, all of whom have previously worked with us.
We request prior payment in full to secure your reservation. We will refund your reservation in full if we are provided with 48 hours notice written notice. We typically send a payment request through Square or accept payment via credit card over the phone. We will send a pdf receipt to your email by request.
We supply all required tools and equipment. Participants are asked to wear warm clothes, shop-worthy shoes with cotton or leather uppers and a cotton hoodie or work shirt with long cotton sleeves. You may wish to bring snacks.
