In “Eventzee Exposure” we look at testimonials from happy clients who have hosted their own Scavenger Hunts. Our users’ experience is very important to us, so when things go off without a hitch we want to cheer about it. If you’d be interested in sharing your Eventzee experience please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Event Host/Company: Penn State University (Harrisburg Campus)
Event Name: Wellness Scavenger Race
Eventzee was used for a wellness event that emphasized fun and Penn State University history. The event was held on campus during common period, a 2-hour time frame when no classes are scheduled on Tues/Thurs. The clues and tasks were placed all throughout campus for students to complete within the set time frame.
“The feedback was very positive. All expressed interest in attending next year, as we want to make this an annual event. I believe mostly the app added fun to the process. Most students took it very seriously and were quite competitive. Hopefully it also helped increase awareness of our services and tips on maintaining/improving wellness.”
“Snap” the Rooster- Rooster Cogburn was a cowboy that used to drink too much and would “drunk ride” his horse home. Now he uses Uber, and is waiting for his ride in a very accessible area of Olmsted. Find Rooster and take your most creative “horse-riding” picture with him while he waits!
Hail To The Lion!- We Are!…all about the Lion. Head to the Lion Shrine and take your most creative and silly selfie or team pic to be shared at the end of the race.
Beast Mode- Go to the Fitness room and compute the following math problem: Number of treadmills + number of stationary bikes – number of fire extinguishers + number of row machines = ?
Game Day- From billiards to Foosball, students can unwind AND lay some smack on their friends at the games available in the SEC. According to the U.S. Air Hockey Association, how many points does it take to win an air hockey match?
Well it’s been nearly a week since Eventzee staff members Cody and Dylan returned from Austin, TX while attending the TCEA 2016 Convention and Expo, and we’ve been hitting the ground running. We had a great turnout for our photo scavenger hunts and everyone seemed to have a ton of fun.
From chasing down people in unique hats, to spelling out TCEA with their bodies, we kept the players moving and adventuring through the conference halls. Thank you to all who played and thank you to all the vendors who participated as stops in our scavenger hunt.
Check out the galleries from Day 1 and Day 2 of the photo scavenger hunts!
From a business perspective, the event was a home run. We met so many passionate educators who had all sorts of ideas on how to use Eventzee in the classroom. Like we told many of you, many times, at the end of the day the Eventzee staff are not educators, so the success of our product has to come from those who work with students every day. From language teachers using scavenger hunts for live action vocabulary training to chemistry classes using it to train on lab equipment, Eventzee EDU’s customizability makes it perfect for any situation.
A HUGE thank you is in order for everyone involved in making TCEA a success, but especially to Michelle Phillips and Carl Hooker.
Michelle, the Instructional Technology Specialist for Prosper ISD, was the first person to suggest we use Eventzee as an educational tool and she has been working with us since then to develop a safe, fun product that’s easy to use within the classroom. Michelle and Prosper ISD have played an active role in testing Eventzee EDU and we’re excited to continue to move forward with them. Congrats to Michelle for also being nominated as ITS of The Year at TCEA 16’s Educator Awards! Follow Michelle on her website EdTech In Action– you won’t regret it!
Carl is the Director of Innovation & Digital Learning in the Eanes Independent School District and the founder of the learning festival ipadpalooza. Carl was actually one of the first clients Eventzee connected with and he has been a huge proponent for our product at his ipadpalooza events worldwide. An educator himself, Carl is constantly pushing for a strong educational shift with technology integration. You should also follow his blog “HookeED on Innovation” to learn more!
Once again, we had a great time at #TCEA16 but we have a lot of work ahead of us. If you’re interested in bringing mobile scavenger hunts into your classroom, contact us today!
Didn’t catch us at booth #224? Well that’s OK. Check out blogger Tim Holt’s interview he did at our booth with Eventzee Director of Operations, Dylan Derryberry.
