This activity may be done as a standalone session with teams solving a number of riddles following one storyline, finishing one problem before moving onto the nest. Or, we often use one puzzle as a an option in our online with fun program.
Each puzzle takes between 10 and 20 minutes on average, although quick thinking teams may solve one in record time of course! Up to 6 individual puzzles may be put together in a longer session to last up to 2 hours, with each puzzle leading onto the next one in a brain-storming escape adventure!
- Learn how approach a problem together as a team
- Practice problem solving skills

TED puzzles are introduced with a video explaining the problem, and a handout for the teams to describe the rules and the conditions.
Teams are separated into smaller groups to work on each problem, usually in competition with the other teams to see who can be the first to solve them all!
