Virtual Scavenger Hunt of the Smithsonians – IN YOUR HOME!
Sat, August 22, 2020 @ 11:30AM To Sat, August 22, 2020 @ 02:30PM
The actual Smithsonian Museums are closed. But, even though you can’t see Dorothy’s Ruby Slippers, or the Hope Diamond, or a T-Rex, or the Batmobile – it doesn’t mean you can’t explore the Smithsonian that is in your own home!
Given that we all have items we store at home (some of them many years old – and some of them that we haven’t looked at in many years), today we unravel the Smithsonian in your home in a brand new online scavenger hunt!
On July 25, TTD is bringing the scavenger hunt to you! Search for random crazy objects, items you forgot you may have had, answer general (or useless) trivia, and complete challenges from your very own living room.
Take the dinosaurs and hope diamonds out from your closets! From your Jr. High School history paper, to a shot glass from college, to a random thimble that may be sitting in a random drawer or a random foreign coin you were saving, to a special invention we challenge you to make, today’s scavenger hunt will bring you many new friends online and push your creativity to beyond its limits!
Today’s event will take place via ZOOM. Please try to install this on your app or mobile device in advance.
How does it work?
1) Upon starting, we will break you into teams and put you each into a virtual breakout chat room. Each team will be given a list of several items to retrieve, pictures to take, trivia to learn about each other, and challenges to complete.
2) A team leader will be chosen to help direct their team to collect the items. Each item and challenge will be worth a certain amount of points. Teams are not expected to retrieve all of the items listed.
3) There will be 2 to 3 different check-ins times during the day. At each time, new curveballs and challenges may be thrown at each team for a chance to win more points.
4). The winning team will be the one that collects the most points. Prizes will be awarded to the top team.
Throughout the afternoon, you’ll learn about and explore fascinating subjects of your own home, your neighborhood, and your teammates. There are over 100 items listed and what you see depends upon your team’s resolve, speed and ability to have fun!
Note: The race starts at noon sharp!
All chatroom links and invitations will be sent out a few minutes before the event (to ensure only registrants attend). They will be sent to the email address you use to register for the event.
Any unauthorized person, or any person acting inappropriately during the chat room, or anyone using this as a forum to sell their own services or products will be immediately removed and blocked.
