Team Up for AU IQ
Date: September 18, 2008
AU IQ will put the power of the human brain to the test—for a great cause—on Saturday, Oct. 4, 2008 at 8 p.m. in the Johnson Gym. The event will bring together up to 50 teams of five Andrews University students each to play an academic quiz game. All monies raised will fund building an orphanage for the CERENID Mission Project, the Center for the Rehabilitation of Children at Risk of Drug Addiction, (Spanish translation: Centro de Recuperacion para Ninos en riesgo de Drogas), in Lajas, Bolivia, an outreach for the Architecture Missions Group.
Questions compiled from academic disciplines across campus will be displayed on four large screens. Each team will be equipped with a clicker and will “buzz” in with their answer to earn points. Cash prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.
The cost to play is $10 per student. Some departments are providing sponsorship for teams. Please check with your department to see if a team has been formed. If your department would like to provide team sponsorship or simply donate to the CERENID Mission Project, please call Shelly Erhard, social recreation events coordinator, at 471-3568.
Student, staff, faculty and the public are invited to watch AU IQ and learn more about the CERENID Mission Project.
Since 1995, students and faculty from the Andrews University School of Architecture have been designing and constructing buildings in the CERENID Mission Project, including a church, administration building and a general purpose building with a kitchen, dining rooms and classrooms. Currently, there are 35 children from the ages of five to 12 years old at CERENID where they are overcoming drug-related or social problems. There is a great need for this type of facility in Bolivia, and as finances become available the capacity will be increased to accommodate 80 children.
