IEEE Quiz Night 2009

The UoA IEEE Student Branch organised and ran the ECE 2009 Quiz on Thursday October 1. There were six rounds giving the 20 teams of students a wide range of challenging questions, with quiz-master Dr Andrews often providing informative comments and humorous insights.

Team Awesomeness tied with Ampere’s Nightmare after the final round with 52 points each, but the tie-breaker question handed the $100 prize to Ampere’s Nightmare.

The heavily competitive night was well received with a good supply of pizza and drinks and the event is well on the way to becoming an institution!
