Despite being a all-virtual event, the organizers wanted to have a way for students on teams to meet and socialize. They came up with the Virtual Team Pits.
In a special area where only team members, coaches, and volunteers can "hang out", teams are encouraged to chat, share images and stories and play games together. They even have a private Minecraft server set up for all the kids to play together.
We also created and hosted multiple Zoom Team Chat's for the students to see and hear from children on other teams. One of the Zoom meetings even included a Show & Tell session so children can share their talents or anything they want (personal or about their team).
