This game will help you discover the secrets of Caltech and help you begin to feel comfortable navigating your way around campus. The Scavenger Hunt will lead you to various token spots ("T-spots") around the Caltech campus. Each T-spot corresponds to a particular building or location on campus. You will be provided with a map to help you. For each T-spot, there are Questions, a Photo Spot, and a Clue to a hidden token! The answers to the questions can be found only by visiting the T-spot. You must take a team photo at each designated Photo Spot, and try to find the hidden token. Points are given for partial completion, so complete as many tasks as you can without spending too much time in one place.
Ways to Win
Team photos will be featured on the ISP website. Team(s) can "win" the Scavenger Hunt in a number of ways:
- Most tokens found
- Best team photo from the designated Photo Spots
- Most creative team name
- Most questions answered correctly
Photo Spots and Cameras
At each T-spot, there is a designated Photo Spot. You must include all but one member of your team in each photo. Be creative! Email your team's best (one) photo to ISP@caltech.edu.
At each T-spot, you will be given a "Hiding Spot Clue." Follow this clue to a hidden token. If you find the hidden token, only take one hidden token for each team. (Remember the Honor Code!)
You have two hours to complete the Scavenger Hunt. Try to visit as many T-spots and answer as many questions as you can within this time limit. Note: It may be advantageous to visit the T-spots in a different order than they are given!
Think of an awesome name for your team!
Bonus Questions and/or the team's finish time will be used as a tie breaker.
Helpful Hint: Mountains are to the north of Caltech.
