SMW Büro – online 🎲🎮

The origin of the Discord-server “SMW Büro” was from the “Card-Games-&-Co.”-Stamm during the first Covid lockdown. Even after that Stamm, many students of material science still meet up there for several entertainments, e.g. Jass, Skribbl, Poker, Cards Against Humanity, Among Us etc. Those in our department, who needs an invitation for the server, can send us an e-mail. 😏

Pubquiz-Stamm on 18 November 2020🎉🍻

On Wednesday, 18 November 2020, at 19.00 o’clock we had the first Online-Pubquiz via Zoom about the ETH and its campus. Many teams (with very creative names) of all semesters participated, which was really exciting! They had to compete in giving answers to picture and guessing questions as well as questions via Kahoot. In the end, a voucher for “Drinks of the World” was given to the winner team “PANDEMIC! at the Disco” 🍾🌍.
