Engineering Physics team SemperFizz wins Google Games University of British Columbia 2015 on May 2.
This years theme was “Out of this World.” Events involved trivia, a building challenge, puzzles, word association and coding competitions.
Bardia: “We really enjoyed this experience. It allowed us to put on our creative-thinking and problem-solving hats and have fun.
It focused primarily on problem-solving and creative thinking under time constraints and pressure. It was a truly amazing experience.”
Ranesh: “It was a really fun and friendly environment. I had a blast. I would definitely want to do the competition again next year.”
Scott: “I thought it was an interesting mix of programming, puzzles and even tower building.”
Alex: “Our team was very well balanced and our EngPhys background allowed us to exceed in all challenges rather than just a few!”
Bardia: “We are really proud of this achievement, first and foremost because of winning a Computer Science targeted and organized competition as an Engineering Physics team.”
Ricky: “The games were a fun and challenging mental workout and we can’t wait to compete again next year!”
