I should put up a picture of my office. The entire back wall is boxes of lego boxes. I’ve been using the Adafruit (Large Tin With Clear Top Window) as my cases for individual window kits, and found they stack really well into a travel luggage organiser in blocks of 32 – instant 8 teams of 4 options. I also have the sorter sheet over on Mecabricks for restoring the kits to their 49 piece starting line up.
@paraggadhia – the 15 brick exercise is a modification based on the Explain This! from the Starter kit.
With the client, we set a question that the participant won’t see until after they’ve selected the pieces – I do a few exercises where it’s the first of a question pair (eg what have you learnt / how will you use it; what are you goals / what is the next step towards that goal)
Participants get a pair of compulsory choice sets, usually with a brick crossover between the two, and free choice to pick other pieces – there’s variance as to whether the minifig is one or three bricks, or if the rotor + attaching brick is one or two. They get a few minutes to pick, then get shown the question – it’s about intentionally creating cognitive dissonance, and having that moment of “Well, if I knew what the question was, I would have picked differently”. Then a build time of two or three minutes, and by the end, they’re using abstract creations to share rich stories with each other – it’s a real transformative moment from “The Power is In The Right Piece” to “The Power is in the Story Maker”.
Where there’s a second question, I’ll often provide an octoplate (part 89523) for use as a base for the challenge question, and then participants can build onto/atop or in response to their challenge model.
I do use an identity kit + landscape kit on occasion – I’ve renamed my kit the BB-K (base build kit), and bring that into play when we’re looking at a major collaborative build opportunity – most of the time, because I get 90 minutes to 2 hours, I restrict it to the Window Kits though. If I am running BB-K, people do their skills build exercise (Tower, Metaphor, 15 brick) with Windows, and then transfer over to the BB-K
