Construct is the most complex problem solving task we provide at Kingswood and is ideal for older groups who want to explore real world learning that is directly applicable to school, the workplace or even community projects or sports teams who work together in dynamic and pressured situations. Using a set of specialist equipment our staff facilitate the design and build of a Kingswood Activity to be used by the group. Working together to manage appropriate risks and supporting each other the group work in a practical way to build a ‘low ropes course’ that must transport the group safely across an area of woodland. Theory meets practice as the group design and construct the course with a very tangible set of outcomes.
