MIMIC students receive teamwork training during
their weekly company meetings.  Above, students begin an exercise in which they lower a "helium pole" to the floor while the pole rests on everyone's hands. If the team doesn't balance the pole equally, they must start over again.

Below, students are close to their goal. A MIMIC instructor, in the background, watches to see that everyone's hands are supporting the pole. 

Preparing students to work productively in workplace 
teams is an important objective of the MIMIC project.
