Section Spotlight: WVU Murder Mystery Lunch

Written by WVU Section Vice-President: Britta McCombie

Does “Colonel Mustard did it in the Conservatory with the revolver” sound familiar to you? This is a saying that takes place in the boardgame, Clue, when a player feels that they have determined the suspect, room and weapon of the crime. The WVU Section of the Society of Women Engineers made this game into a real life stage when they held the event, Murder Mystery Lunch. Several area girl scouts came to the Engineering Sciences Building at WVU to see if they could solve a worldwide “crime.” The girls traveled to different stations, each representing a country. They participated in several math and geographical activities which yielded a clue when each station was complete. By the end of the day, a winner was crowned and the crime solved!

At the end of the day, the girls earned a badge in “Maps, Math, and More.” The details of the stations can be found Math, Maps and More.

A big thank you to our MML leads: Brittany Goff and Virginia Chambers as well as all the other student organizations that volunteered (NSBE, Microgravity, AIChE, etc.)
