Green Coats got the chance to try out one of the new Education Arcade games on Friday during the final setup of the 2017 Annual Meeting.
The practice session for the Squares games took place in the Sails Pavilion, which will be the heart of the Education Arcade. The games will help attendees connect and engage with the meeting in new ways, while highlighting some of the ACOG educational materials available to members. Everybody is invited to take a break, challenge themselves (and their friends) and win prizes.
Squares is a twist on the classic “musical chairs” game from childhood. Up to 20 attendees will play on a 20-by-20-foot square with four quadrants. Multiple-choice questions will appear on a large monitor, and participants will have to move to a square with the correct answer. Winning players will have to know the answers quickly.
Games take place from 11:40 – 11:55 am and 12:20 – 12:35 pm today, 10:15 – 10:30 am and 3:15 – 3:30 pm Sunday, and 11:40 – 11:55 am and 12:20 to 12:30 pm Monday in the Sails Pavilion.
Sails Pavilion and Exhibit Hall
Attendees can test themselves at the pinball-inspired PROLOG Games stations. Players can pick from four different types of challenges, including a timed challenge and a marathon answering mode. These games are built on the Quiz Mode for PROLOG, the self-directed learning tool and reference guide for obtaining up-to-date specialty information that’s voluntary and confidential.
PROLOG Games are available today through Monday in the Education Arcade in the Sails Pavilion and also in the ACOG booth in the Exhibit Hall Sunday and Monday.
Those waiting for a session to start can engage their brains and join with peers during this challenge, available in selected colloquia and clinical seminar session locations.
Participants can use their smartphone or tablet to answer five multiple-choice questions that will be displayed in the room. Top scores from the room will be displayed at the end of the session.
Those with an interest in the history of ACOG and obstetrics and gynecology will enjoy this game. ACOG has brought some items from its history museum, located at ACOG headquarters in Washington, DC, to San Diego. Those items will be on display in the ACOG booth in the Exhibit Hall from Sunday through Monday.
After browsing the artifacts, attendees can then answer questions about the items or ACOG history.
