Keypad Scramble   Keypad Scramble Activity   Scout Activity

This Activity is meant for Boy Scouts.
Required:
8-12 scouts 
30 paper plates. 
a 50' rope. 
stopwatch. 
Preparation:
tie the rope ends together and lay it out on the ground in a 15x10 rectangle. 
On each paper plate, write one number - from 1 up to 30. 
Distribute the plates number-side up randomly throughout the rectangle with sequential numbers well apart from each other.
Notes:
This activity helps build teamwork, cooperation, and problem solving skills. 
Gather the patrol at a starting line about 10 yards from the rope rectangle.

Objective: Press the numbers in order from 1 to 30 in less than 30 seconds.

Rules:
  1. Only one scout may be touching any buttons or the ground inside the rope at any time.
  2. Time ends when the last scout crosses this finish line.
  3. The team has 4 attempts.



Make it more interesting with a story that this is the keypad for the Earth Computer which runs the earth. It has been sabotaged and will explode if the sequence is not entered in less than 30 seconds.
Or, it's a game show and the team receives $10,000 for every second under 30.

After the first attempt, make sure the team has time to strategize and come up with a plan to try.


Reflect:
Who had ideas?
Who took leadership?
Were all ideas considered?
How well did the team work together?
Did you try it and like it?             Or hate it?
