During the Computer Science Day this year, we will have an electronic scavenger hunt. Each participant will be given an "anonymized" ID card, which will allow him or her to participate in the scavenger hunt by visiting the different marketplace booths (from noon to 2:00pm).
To anonymize the ID cards, we used images of famous (computer) scientists, cartoon characters, movie characters, actors/actresses, singers, etc. Those who successfully complete the scavenger hunt will be eligible for prizes; we will hold at least 4 drawings, at 12:30, 1:00pm, 1:30pm, and 2:00pm.
