Fun and Games at Our Biannual Winter Meeting 2021
The semiannual meeting of IBPSA-USA was held online January 14, 2021 across three time zones. The night kicked off with an ice breaker followed by introductions of our newly elected Board Members, Kyleen Rockwell and Jayati Chhabra, our first Student Director. This announcement was followed by a rousing game of Energy Simulation Pictionary. After everyone moved into Zoom Break Out rooms, each player was charged with drawing a picture using Zoom annotation tools. Terms used in BEM where give to each player secretly by the moderator. The winners were those where the group was able to guess the highest number of words in 3 minutes.
Here are some of the drawings from the players. "Given that several of my team weren't experts in simulation, I think they did great!" said IBPSA-USA Board President Dru Crawley.
CAN YOU GUESS WHAT BEM TERMS THESE DRAWINGS REPRESENT?
At the end of the meeting, folks were then invited to spin our raffle wheel for a chance to win free swag.
The Grand Prize was a free annual membership. Other prizes included an IBPSA-USA branded T-shirt, notebooks and puzzles.
A great time was had by all!
