Norris Box is a mobile team building and communication exercise, allowing you to deliver a novel and fun enrichment activity, within the school setting. Teams have one hour to solve puzzles to unlock locks and ultimately open the box to achieve the scenario objective. Norris Box will engage pupils and help them to develop their logic, problem solving and communication skills, as well as highlight the importance of organisation and team work.
When you book Norris Box, we will travel to you, allowing you to organise a curriculum-linked, enrichment activity without the associated travel time and costs. Importantly, Norris Box won't break the bank either! Competition for university places and jobs is intense and many pupils struggle to provide examples of their 'real world' skills in their personal statements and interviews. Norris Box can provide students with a memorable experience that not only develops, but also demonstrates their ability to work as part of a team in an organised manner, under the pressure of a deadline.
The standard boxes are suitable for Key Stage 5 and high ability Key Stage 4. All of our boxes can be adapted to provide an easier version suitable for mixed ability Key Stage 4 and Key Stage 3. There is also a version of Biohazard which is suitable for use with pupils in Key Stage 2. Information on the curriculum links for a specific box is available on request. For a small additional cost we are also able to design a bespoke box targeted at a specific topic or theme of your choice.
Norris Box could be used as part of an enrichment day or week, either on a carousel of activities or as a stand alone. It could be used as an icebreaker to help integrate a new intake of students at the start academic year. Norris Box could also be used as part of your school's stretch and challenge programme. Contact us and we will aim to provide a package that meets your needs.
