The first activity was ‘Brainstorm’. In this, a puzzle was given to teams, the teams had to find a suitable way or method so as to get the answer. As the puzzle was shown in the form of a video, something new was experienced by everyone.
The teams after solving the first puzzle got the next question, it was a riddle. Both the questions were tough, but with some hints, teams solved them with flying colours.
After the riddle, teams were asked to draw college map and then some tricky images were given, one with hidden words while other with hidden movie names. It was fun and everyone excelled in guessing the names.
