ProctorFree - NCTA 2014 Scavenger Hunt

Nothing gets me going like preparing for a conference. The anticipation of the keynotes, relentless scrolling of session descriptions to plan my schedule, and of course, the exhibitor’s SWAG. Next week (September 4-6) our team is heading to NCTA 2014 in Denver, and the theme is “Mining for Success”. Now to be fair, I don’t know if that’s a wink at the gold rush or big-data mining -which is up-and-coming. My only recommendation is to move the venue to this new cool Dinosaur Hotel.

We’ll be hosting an exhibit table, and doing things a little bit differently this year. You know how gamification is a growing field in education? And you know how experiential learning is a growing field? Want to see what happens when you put these “theoretical lenses” on a conference? You get a scavenger hunt!! Check out the full graphic below.

There are 10 items for attendees to find. Bring at least 8 to our booth and you get a surprise. Maybe it’s a gift card, maybe it’s a signed head shot of Jeff, our Director of Partner Relations, maybe it’s a boat! Only one way to find out….

Here’s the list:

  1. A pen that writes in a color other than blue or black
  2. Something that bounces
  3. A selfie with a person who has the same initials as you
  4. Hand sanitizer
  5. A key chain
  6. Something magnetic
  7. Some kind of smart phone accessory
  8. Branded Wayfarer Sunglasses
  9. Something edible
  10. Something made of foam
