Straw Games

Straw tower construction site

There are almost as many ways to use plastic drinking straws as a building material as for plastic bricks.  Straws are lighter and more flexible.  This kit with guidelines and ideas will set you up to create project design, innovation and management sessions that are suitable for all kinds of training and workshop events, both indoors and out of doors.

The Straw Game is just what you need to run a creative micro-project team experience, providing a fun and enjoyable moment whilst practising some real project skills. There are many variants to the straw tower or bridge.  And you can run the project in an agile fashion, for design and customer interaction, or as a traditional engineering, procurement and construction project with a contract and a specification.

By using the straws as a construction material you can provide different constraints for logistics, security, fabrication and cost engineering, with sufficient risk, adequate change and occasional incident, and all within a tight deadline, if requird.  This set of materials will give you lots of ideas for the preparation and facilitation. 

This game is very scalable. Straws are very light to carry around in a suitcase and so you can organise small to large workshops with a few teams of three or four individuals, right up to teams of ten or twelve who integrate their sub-modules and compete with other teams. You could even run a session composed of many hundreds of people. : Ian Stokes, Project Leader and Advisor
