NXL goes to Mars!

With more than fifteen projects at the MaRS Discovery District in Toronto under our belt, NXL decided it was time to check out the real thing!

Taking a uniquely NXL approach to team building, our firm went to the Challenger Learning Centre at the Ontario Science Centre to participate in a Voyage to Mars. In a two-room simulator of a Space Shuttle and a MaRS Mission Control Centre, the NXL team was divided in two, half in the shuttle, half in mission control, and given the significant task of landing the shuttle safely on MaRS. Not a simple task on any day, but the Challenger Learning Centre leaders at OSC made it a challenging day for NXL – throwing complication after complication at our group.

It may have taken us two tries, but we accomplished our mission – landing the space shuttle safely on Mars, reloading and launching it again to bring the Mission Control team back to Earth.

A great way to see how you work under stress and to push your teamwork skills!
