THE 'EGGCELLENT' CHANNELS OF DISTRIBUTION PROJECT!
-This hands-on marketing activity puts a fun spin on distribution channels by requiring students to move a product from point A to point B while navigating a classroom obstacle course. The product in this case is a hard-boiled egg, which with a little help from a Sharpie and some push pins, becomes a loveable “Eggman". I used the members of KISS for this activity (no one chose Ace...my personal favorite:(
To make things a little more difficult, the students are not allowed to touch the Eggman with their hands. They must transport him by selecting various modes of transportation. For my activity, I use a baseball mitt, a hand-towel, a toy truck, a Sprite bottle, a baseball cap, spoon and various other 'modes of transportation". As an added twist, I require that the students use each method of transportation only once (for instance, a student could not use the spoon to carry the Eggman through each station).
By using this setup, students are forced to develop a plan that utilizes their transportation and labor resources in an efficient manner. The students were timed: $1 second = $100 for the cost to the company to transport the 'KISS EGG' through 5 obstacle courses I set up in the classroom (a 'mountain', an 'ocean', chairs and desks positioned in various difficult ways to navigate, etc.) ending with the uncracked egg in the hands of the consumer!
