BMSCE IEEE student branch conducted a Treasure Hunt on September 5th, 2018 at the campus of BMS College of engineering during the lunch break. The event was open for freshers of the college.
A total count of more than 500 students participated as groups of 4 members each. Information about the workshop was circulated through WhatsApp messages, class to class campaigning, Facebook posts and attractive posters all around the college.
The idea of organizing this technical treasure hunt was to give the students a very brief idea about the events conducted by the IEEE and encourage them to join IEEE. Clues directing them to a few places in college were given to the participants, which was supposed to be deciphered by them, then the participants were supposed to go to that particular place, scan the QR Code, and submit their answers.
The event was extremely successful with an overwhelming number of participants. The first 10 teams to finish were given free gift coupons from Smaaash.
The participants were very energetic and enthusiastic throughout the event, running about the campus and having a lot of fun. Along with the aim of publicly announcing IEEE as a club, the event also brought together freshers of BMSCE and allowed them to interact among themselves as well as their seniors. There was a great response from the first-years and there was great feedback about the event.
