From the keyboard to the milk pail: the participants in the computer programming competition, the EESTech Challenge, experience a memorable day in Zurich.

“Where is Elsa?” was the title of this year’s final of the EESTech Challenge, a contest organized by the Electrical Engineering Students’ European Association (EESTEC). Students from 12 different countries traveled to Switzerland to put their programming skills to the test in the halls of the ETH. The task: to create a cow recognition program – like a face recognition program, only with cows – within a period of 24 hours. On the day after the Challenge, the Zürich Tourism Convention Bureau invited the participants and organizers to a day packed with adventure and activity to give them the opportunity to see Zurich outside of the ETH.
