Please join us on Thursday, April 30 (Dead Day), 12:30-2pm for a Virtual BBQ in place of our traditional end-of-year celebration! We will gather on Zoom (email the GCSP Director for Zoom connection info) to build our community and celebrate our five graduating seniors! As a reminder, this event is BYOH (Bring Your Own Hotdog).
We will allow time at the beginning of the event to spotlight each Scholar for ~30 seconds. See the recent GCSP@Mines newsletter for the conversation starters, if you want to get a head start on thinking about what you will share.
GCSP@Mines Virtual Scavenger Hunt Guidelines:
- Each Scholar will be placed in a team of ~5 students using the Zoom breakout rooms. There will be time for quick introductions among your teammates after you are assigned to your breakout room.
- You will then have five minutes to individually run around your house/apartment and find the best items to represent the list below.
- After finding the items, you will come back to your team and share what you found. As a team, you will then select the best item for each category to report out to the larger group.
- There will be a total of 15 minutes for the scavenger hunt in your teams, and five minutes to report out to the larger group.
- Prizes will be awarded for the most creative finds!
Scavenger Hunt Items:
- Something green to represent the National Academy of Engineering’s sustainability theme.
- Something blue to represent the National Academy of Engineering’s health theme.
- Something red to represent the National Academy of Engineering’s security theme.
- Something yellow to represent the National Academy of Engineering’s joy of living theme.

Creativity points will be awarded based on:
- If the item meets the stated objective from the list above.
- The addition of wit and humor
- Originality – finding a unique item that others would not have thought of
