  2. Write down the question (or print on multiple A3 (or bigger) pages for the different groups)
  3. Explain the challenge
For the next 45 minutes the teams will come up with ideas to accomplish the impossible. When time has run out, the teams will present their ideas to each other. Afterwards a group discussion on the ideas should result in one or more possible solutions that could be explored further. Example questions:
