It might not be crushing swimming world records, playing volleyball in the sand or doing back flips on a balance beam, but XPLANE has been enjoying some Olympic competition of our own this summer. To create and compete in games that test the mettle of mind and creativity, XPLANE recently held a two-part Visual Thinking School (VTS) deemed the Creative Olympics. Four hours of extreme creativity were unleashed as teams competed for the gold in sports including tower building, music making, origami folding, Pictionary-style sketching, color mixing, and dance. Check out the Olympic memories in our VTS photo album.
