Computer Science Corporate Visits

Google Games is back and we want to know, do you have what it takes to be a superhero? Or do your skills lurk on the dark side, with your inner villain waiting to take stride?

Whether you are good or evil, battle it out against other teams in trivia, puzzles, coding, word association and Lego building. In addition to the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat, snacks, lunch and an event shirt will be provided to all participants and prizes for top teams.

Find four friends (Computer Science background strongly recommended), come up with a team name and each register individually here. Can't find a team? Sign up as an individual and we will do our best to put you in a team with others.
