Abandon Ship!

8+ Years

Abandon Ship Workshop

60 Minute Workshop   |   8+ Years Old   |   KS2+   |   Available All Year

An exercise in thinking outside the box, Abandon Ship uses actual liferafts supplied by Survitec Ltd. The workshop focuses on developing pupils transferable skills in communication, problem-solving and decision-making as well as promoting self-confidence, self-esteem, co-operation and teamwork.

Based around the scenario of being the crew of 3 yachts which collide with an iceberg, students must abandon ship into the liferafts. When ‘onboard’, each pupil must consider, both individually and as a group, how each of 15 items provided could be used in their situation.

This workshop is available for KS2 and KS3 students with set curricular learning intentions and is also an excellent icebreaker for year 8 students!

Key Highlights:
  • Uses Liferafts from Survitec Ltd.
  • Teamwork and Communication
  • Critical Thinking

*Workshop also available for corporate teambuilding.
