Dr. Wak-wak, please help us!

After a search from Google, Dr. Wakwak is not uniquely Filipino. But the name though, makes the game sound more playful than the English equivalent.

Here’s a description fromĀ http://wilderdom.com/games/descriptions/HumanKnot.html:

Human Knot

  • a get-to-know-you icebreaker
  • involves close physical proximity
  • can be used as a name game
  • helps a group learn aboutĀ  how to work together
  • can also focus on group understanding of communication, leadership, problem solving, teamwork, trust, persistence, etc.

I had my CMSC 21 class do the Dr. Wakwak exercise as reprieve from the semester-long coding work. We had our make up class at the Hadsan Cove Resort, Mactan Island, Lapu-Lapu City, Cebu.

Problem-solving need not be in code.
