We're back

Please join us for this fourth installment of our wildly popular Science Trivia Challenge. If you've tried the usual bar team trivia and longed for more than the occasional science question, then this is the trivia competition you've been waiting for.

Format

The competition will consist of 2 halves consisting of 8 questions each. Unlike conventional team trivia, all of the questions are multiple-part questions of varying degrees of difficulty. This gives every team an opportunity to participate in every question, while allowing those with special expertise to distinguish themselves. See this FAQ for details.

The best way to get an idea of what the Science Trivia Challenge is about is to take a look at the slide shows that were used as presentations in December 2011May 2011 and December 2010.

Prizes

Prizes will be awarded in the form of Manuel's gift certificates as follows:

  • $50 - 1st place
  • $30 - 2nd place
  • $20 - 3rd place

Teams

Teams of high school and college students are welcome, but we encourage people, especially those with particular expertise, to mix it up to help keep the teams balanced. It's fun to treat this is a opportunity get to know other Science Tavern members.

    Hard and challenging...questions that make one think (and go home to study!) and the music was nicely paired.

    I'll need a team, but I can find one when I arrive, unless anybody needs an extra person.

    If you don't find a team ahead of time, you can usually just show up and join a table with an open seat. I have done that. You'll have fun no matter what.

    Hi--I'm new here. I'm a health/medical editor and might help with some of the "life sciences"-type questions. Otherwise, I'll be pretty useless. That said, anyone need a team member?? :-)
