Google's Street View visited CERN facilities and the CERN people thought to organize a treasure hunt around their computing centre inviting all of you to participate and find the hidden LEGO figures they placed!
|"Hidden among the racks of servers and disks in the CERN Computing Centre, you'll find Hawaiian dancers, space aliens, gorillas...all LEGO® figurines! These characters were placed about the Centre for the arrival of Google's Street View team for the world to discover.|
We're pleased to announce our first global scavenger hunt! Spot three LEGO® figurines using Google's Street View and you'll be entered to win a gift of your choice from our CERN Gift Guide."
Here are the details:
Find at least three LEGO® figurines hidden around the CERN Computing Centre using Google Street View.
Take screencaps of the figurines and e-mail the pictures to TreasureHunt-ComputingCentre@cern.ch.
There will be TWO winners: one from CERN and one from the general public. If you are from CERN, make sure to send your pictures from your CERN e-mail account.
The competition is open until 31 January.
The winners will be contacted by e-mail and will be announced in the Bulletin.
Try looking on top of racks and servers; these figurines won't be hanging from the air!
There are over 20 LEGO® figurines spread across both floors of the Computing Centre. If you think you've looked everywhere, try the next floor.
We've included a map of the Computer Centre and an example of a figurine (above) to help you get started.
