Materials Needed:

We need something that we can step on. Paper is basic but discouraged because it may no longer be used after the activity. A more sustainable option is small rubber mats, about the size that one person can stand on.


Get the team from point A to point B without a breach of the rules.


  1. Everyone on the team must always be on a "hover board". No body part should be touching outside of "hover boards".
  2. Teams are only given a limited number of "hover boards". Make the most of what is available.
  3. An added challenge would be to include a rule disallowing verbal communication.
  4. Any breach of the rules will restart the activity. Teams will start again from point A.


The space hover boards team building activity can address a wide variety of learning objectives. Specifically, it can create awareness and spur change in communication-related concerns within organizations. Debrief can focus on specific communications issues as they appear during the team's dynamics during the conduct of the activity.
