Week review

During the Constitutional General Assembly last Monday we officially became the board of Cover. We're the 26th board and our theme is "Sharp". And Wednesday we had our first activity with the Di(e)scover. We had a blind craft beer tasting and a scavenger hunt in the afternoon, the team "The Bold and the beautiful" had both the best time on the scavenger hunt and the best score for the blind beer tasting, racking in the craft beer pack. After that we went over to Wereld burgers to have some great burgers and wedges. Now it was time for some drinks at het gat van Groningen. I really had a great time and I think everybody else had too. Although the results from the blind beer tasting where a bit worse than expected haha. On Thursday we had the TAD-Talk: Atos about text analysis.

Make sure to attent the IntroCee afterparty next Monday if you paid for stuff during the auction!

This year’s theme is Disruptive Technology. Disruptive Technology is technology that displaces an established technology. This will shake up the current industry or is so ground breaking that it creates its own industry. This topic is focussing on current and future technologies that will change the work field of current students. It is hard for students to predict the future of a rapidly changing market. We want to give the students a mind-changing insight into the future.
