Corporate Team Building Events

Team Building Activities in our State-of-the-Art Makerspace

Hold your Next Offsite at the Krause Center for Innovation

Spend a morning or afternoon learning about design thinking, solving problems using state-of-the-art makerspace tools, and engaging in playful competition with colleagues. A catered lunch is available for your team to enjoy in this scenic setting in the hills above Silicon Valley.

During your team building offsite, your team will have access to tools and materials in our Makerspace, including 3D printers, routers for sophisticated laser cutting and etching, computers that include software tools for beginners or advanced designers, and a rich variety of other tools.


“This was the first time in months that I totally ignored my phone for over three hours.”

Practice Design Thinking

Working in small teams, participants will design and prototype solutions to real life problems. Following design thinking best practices, they’ll collaborate using a combination of computer design tools, hardware products such as printers and cutters, and an array of traditional DIY tools.

Strengthen Your Team as they Play, Design, and Learn Together

Along the way, team members discover their creative ability, work with colleagues in new ways, and have a fun-filled time in this beautifully designed facility. KCI staff members lend technical expertise and manage the complete process from beginning to end.
