MAKER: Hands-On Engineering Scavenger HuntAbstractEvery year to celebrate the new semester at _Institute_, engineering students get together for aweek of activities, competitions, and shenanigans. One activity during this week is called KeyClue. It is a week-long scavenger hunt to find a hidden key somewhere within the _Name_ citylimits. Key Clue could be compared to attempting to find a needle in a field of haystacks. Eachengineering department forms a team that works together solving clues to find the key before theother departments. The event is organized and run by two or three alumni who are known as theKey Masters.Throughout the week, the clues given to the teams range from complex ciphers, engineeringproblems, competitive activities such as scuba diving and archery, contextual clues within thestory plot, and hands-on ciphers. This MAKER project will outline one of the hands-on ciphersthat will have been used in the 2015 Key Clue event. In the past these have included 3-D puzzles,frozen glass bottles, wheel ciphers, ciphered dream catchers, and modified Rubik’s cubes.
