A brainy place to hold a team building scavenger hunt at Stanford University
Event Description: One of the world’s leading universities, Stanford stresses research along with teaching. It’s also a great place for a teambuilding treasure hunt event: flat pedestrian walkways, public art, and historical signage abound.
Location History: The loving creation of Leland and Jane Stanford, tree-lined Stanford University has been educating and inspiring students for over 115 years. Leland Stanford-California Governor and one of the “Big Four” businessmen who helped build the transcontinental railroad- had a dream: to create a co-educational university of “practical education”, producing “cultured and useful citizens”.
During your teambuilding treasure hunt… expect to explore the central campus’ many plazas and arched arcades, dotted with public art and interesting architectural details. Expect to see a stylish water clock; statues from New Guinea; Rodin’s thinker, and plenty more.
Here’s Dr. Clue himself, Dave Blum, sharing his thoughts about this teambuilding scavenger hunt:
Not every corporate team building program is the same. Depending on your group, your focus may be integrating new people into the team and breaking down personal boundaries and divisions. Or you may have an existing department where teams could, with a little practice, cooperate and communicate more smoothly across teams and divisions. Or you might simply have a group that thrives on the use of technology. Let Dr. Clue customize your hunt program by selecting the content focus that best matches your group and your needs.
