Their first assignment was to design what they will build and figure out what kids of materials from the nature can be used. Once that was done it was time to build what was created on the paper before. It took quite a long time as kids had to figure out how to make it safe for the egg. Finlay it was time to try their nests and see what other teams have created. Challenge was on and teams where exited to see eggs flying down.

Meanwhile other half of the group where rock climbing. After safety speech kids where ready to put on harnesses and helmets and try out their skills.
