The SPIE Brussels student chapter board organized a 3-day teambuilding event to further stimulate the bonds between the researchers at B-PHOT. The teambuilding was organised in the Ardennes, from the 15th until the 17th of April, with 2 overnights in a guest house at Forrières.
The teambuilding event started with a spaghetti dinner followed by a quiz: ideal activities to create a great atmosphere right from the start. On the second day the team visited the Caves of Han. During a guided-tour, an extensive explanation about the origin and evolution of the caves was given. The beauty of the caves fascinated everyone! After lunch, we continued our trip to Dinant for an outdoor laser game and orientation walk. During the laser game two teams were formed who had to defend their territory while staying alive as long as possible. Afterwards, the group was divided in different teams for the orientation walk where the different teams had to find as much as possible checkpoints in a hilly park. The competition and team-spirit during this game resulted in a lot of fun. The team building activity was concluded with a dinner, in the local restaurant ‘La Fayette’ in Rochefort, followed by a costume party, resulting in funny outfits. On the third day, the teambuilding ended with a brunch, after which everyone returned to Brussels with an invigorated team spirit.
