Early Career Researchers Event

Date: Wednesday, June 21

Deadline to Register: Monday, June 19

Time: 6:15 PM

Cost: $20

Following the great enthusiasm received by the Early Career Researchers, we have organized an exciting scavenger hunt in Washington, DC with the support of the company Watson Adventures. Join us for this morale-boosting, fun-igniting game that gets your colleagues interacting in new, surprising ways. The scavenger hunt will end with a celebratory bash at the finish line, the pub! *

On most of our hunts, you’re not hunting for objects (drop that pigeon!) but for answers to tricky and humorous questions about the intriguing places and objects you discover. Typically the game lasts two hours and is a great way to see the city.

The meeting point for the beginning of the event will be at the registration desk in the Natcher Building, right after the ISMPB General Assembly meeting at 6:15 PM.

For those who prefer to meet directly in DC, the meeting point is the Treasury Building Plaza at 7pm. There will be someone there with a baseball cap from Watson Adventures.
