There are plenty of team building experiences. For example, to have a complete working model, all parts of the team have to work harmoniously with each other. At the end of the journey, if the car is working, you can drive the cars that you helped build from scratch.
As well as, team members can interact with people from industry and companies and gain connections for the future such as Mahle.
