INSEAD MBA France – January 2019

The INSEAD MBA Class of 19D in Fontainebleau delivered an amazing town-themed play space for the children of The Medical and Educational Institutes (IME) La Sittelle.

The project began with a brief to “remove the old disused cycle route and replace this with a new and engaging construction for the children to use”. Splash designed an interactive, town-themed play fence which included: a hotel-shaped Connect 4 and creative playspaces styled as a Café, Bakery, Bank, School, Garage and many more!

The students of Class 19D were then tasked with building this entire play space in just 4-days. So with 80 students a day, every planning exercise the teams E6, E7, E8, E9 organised themselves into sub-teams and allocated tasks for the day.

As well as the students being challenged to build the outdoor space, they were also be challenged to make a film of the entire 4-day Splash Project. The media team for each day produced storyboards, interviewed students and stakeholders and assisted the edit of the project film under the supervision of the Splash Project Media Facilitator.

This Splash Project was being built for IME La Sittelle, a charity that accommodates disabled children and young adults with learning disabilities that range from personality disorders to motor and sensory conditions.

When asked about their Splash Project experience, the students from the Class of 19D in France replied with:

“Highlight of Launch week! I think MBA students should spend more time outdoors with power tools and less time inside!”

“It was an amazing time to bond with my team while giving back to the community of Fontainebleau”

“Amazing, best thing I may have done in my life”

“Truly engaging activity”

“Really fun, great team building and the team (Splash) were super organised so we just could get on with the job”

This project was a huge success! Thank you to all of the students involved for their contribution, the charity are truly ecstatic with the final outcome, and the children here will enjoy with spaces for many years to come…
