In the last half year, many things has happened around Proto. Almost 90 of it’s 425 members took care of incredible, sweet, great events, bringing large or small groups of CreaTers closer together. Together with a number of storytelling pictures, we’re looking back to some of the highlights of the past few months.
The year hasn’t even started yet and the first activities are already there! A group of almost a hundred new Creative Technology students entered the SmartXp for the first time and chose their favorite Do-Group parents. Nine days, filled with activities, new friends and less sleep, followed, of which three days were organized by the KICC 2014. Within these three days, students got the chance to fulfill the many embarrassing assignments of the Scavenger Hunt, to build a life threatening robot during the LEGO Robot Wars and to listen to exiting lectures and talks of e.g. Edwin Dertien.
ProtoCamp – Wizards of BoOZe A new tradition has born: ProtoCamp. For the third time in history, the Camp Committee organized a weekend full of activities for a bunch of CreaTers. With Wizards of BoOZe as theme of this years camp, the group
was split in four ‘houses’ of wizards. During the activities like ‘Pimp Your Team’, ‘Quidditch’ and the traditional Cantus, these groups could win or loose points, with at the end one winning group. Wacom Tablet Draw-Off In collaboration with S.G. Daedalus, the study association of Industrial Design, we put up the first Wacom Tablet Draw-Off of Enschede. During this event, multiple students of Creative Technology, Industrial Design and some other studies could show their drawing skills on a professional Wacom Tablet. The students got two cases, in which they were asked to make a drawing in only 15 minutes. The first case was about creating a new application for a sportive activity in the categories ‘climbing’, ‘skating’ and ‘free-running’. In the other case, the assignments was to design a cover for a new game in again three different genres. In the end, the jury including Pim Jager (Student Union), Tom Nijkamp (Wacom) and Robert Wendrich (Teacher Industrial Design), choose one student as the best Tablet Illustrator of the Wacom Tablet Draw-Off 2014. pLAN Party The pLAN Committee already organized two
pLAN Party’s in the SmartXp. During these evenings, nights and mornings, a group of Creative Technology students played several games for hours and hours, supported by tons of energy drinks. Bachelor Colloquiem At the end of January, Creative Technology had another large group of students which finished their Bachelor. During the Bachelor Colloquiem, these students got the opportunity to show their research findings with a Bachelor Presentation. For the first time, all the visitors of this day could vote for the most innovative, inspiring or just the best presentation. At the end of the day, the project which remained the most votes won the CreaTe Graduation Project Award 2015. Midwinter BBQ What is the best thing you could imagine, while the winter is at is coldest? Yes indeed, a BBQ! Every midwinter, the ACE organizes a BBQ Ski Trip – The Ice Age Is Coming Winter Wonderland Gala So, what’s next? Wow! All these wonderful activities in less than one year? Yes! But, of course, there is more. Now the spring is coming up, and the leaves are turning green again, Proto’s committees are working on new activities! Just a small update on the upcoming events, planned in the next months:
