Treasure Hunt: Indiana Jones and the lost treasure of Cover

Tue 26 Apr, 15:00, CACHE (Cover room)

Rumours say, that somewhere in Groningen Cover’s lost treasure is still hidden. Many have searched for it, but none have found it.

With your team you are going to solve assignments and riddles/puzzles to progress towards the treasure! Both the assignments and finding the treasure first earn you points. We start at the CACHE. At several locations there will be assignments to be fulfilled.

Can you find the treasure?

Board Members 2016–2017

Are you interested in being in the next Cover board? A board year is a very valuable experience and a lot of fun! Besides that it is a great addition to your resume. In the first half of April we organize an open board meeting and an board interest night (with former board members as well) so you can learn what being in the board is all about. We also organize personal coffee moments where you can ask anything to a board member. If you have any questions or if you want to request a coffee moment, contact the board or one of its members directly!

Cover’s Parent Day will give them a unique opportunity to see what Artificial Intelligence and Computer Science are all about!
