Participants split into 5 teams to work on group activities called "scavenger hunts." Here one group of students and faculty work on Scavenger Hunt 2. The hunts are available at the Undergraduate ALFALFA Team Observing and Data Analysis page and our Practice question page. Feel free to use these if you'd like!
