The Technology behind the Jam Evening

On 24 November 2023 the Educafé was transformed to a fantastical musical venue. From 19:30 till midnight the air was filled with sound. Mostly beautiful music, some awkward silences and the occasional encouraging chant. It was the one and only Jam evening, a band evening were the stage is open and everyone able to lay down a tune was more than welcome on stage. There were a total of 8 drummers present, so the drumkit was always in heigh demand. But how came this magical evening to be?

As a new student this year (or a returning second-year), you get the chance to become an active member of the association and join one of Scintilla’s many committees - but what does that even mean? ...

SHOCK Tinkering Contest

Studying at a (technical) university has both positive and negative sides. On the one hand we can be part of the development of cutting-edge technology. On the other hand, we barely get to touch this state-of-the-art technology as most of our work and research is theoretical. That is why many Electrical Engineerings crave a bit of tinkering. To facilitate this tinkering Scintilla’s SHOCK organised a tinkering contest. Some brave enthousiasts joined the contests and their projects share some common themes. ...
