Googly quiz , as the name suggests, involved a set of questions for which the participants could search Google for the answers. Such a format not only guaranteed active participation from students but also kindled in them an interest to learn about new topics. The questions were given in the form of slides in Google Slides. Students were asked to write the answers in a crossword puzzle which was provided beforehand. Everyone was given a time limit of 30 minutes to complete the quiz. Each question was awarded one mark and the one with maximum marks bagged the first prize of free IEEE membership worth Rs.1500.

Through this event, we were able to reach out to the 1st years and give them an idea about what IEEE and its Communication Society do and how being well informed about latest technologies helps us as future engineers.
