Today I'd like to discuss the ideas of growing in a skill as well as being inspired and motivated to do so.
For any of you who have been keeping up with UAT news, you'd know that the Tech Trek Discovery Expo, Forum and Career Fair happened this past weekend, and needless to say, from the student perspective, it was fantastic! Our entire week had different events scattered throughout, such as talks from the NSA, workshops and talks from other members of the various industries, tables and events set about the commons for aspiring workers for various business, and we had our Tech Trek Discovery members on Saturday!
This isn't something new that we have here at UAT, but it hasn't been around for a while. Think of it like a spirit week. There were dress up days and events going on all week. Plus, it ran alongside Tech Forum as well. The events were small because many people were already busy. However, there was a paper airplane competition on Monday and the dress up theme was Asian. Tuesday, Nerf Wars was outside with their guns having fun. Right after that, I turned the quad into a board game called Save the Damsel. It was a ton of fun! Any time players landed in the same square, they had to have a ninja fight. There were other squares where you would have to dance. When you got closer to the Damsel, which was a stuffed peacock, you would either have to serenade her or try to woo her. Your success was voted on by the players. Here are some pictures of that:
