Our Explore! game simulates Lewis and Clark's great expedition to explore the vast new land to the west of the Mississippi River acquired as a result of the Louisiana Purchase.
During the seminars, participants assume roles as expedition leaders and key staff members while planning and conducting a simulated quest to explore an uncharted region. All aspects of planning such as transportation, route selection, purchase of supplies and selecting party members have a direct impact on the success of the expedition. During the expedition, party members are faced with a myriad of challenges as they encounter native inhabitants, wildlife, and the sheer force of nature. Many of which are very relevant to the organization whose members are participating in the seminar.
Historical lessons provide timeless case studies of the value of superior leadership, critical thinking skills, and team processes. Throughout our Explore! seminars we carefully weave historical lessons into the learning process.
