Who is in the image to the left?
We were thrilled with the level of knowledge and enthusiasm of the group – we had no idea that there were such fearsome, science trivia-lites among us!
A few highlights from the night:
- Team Darwinners winning first place, after an epic music round naming every science song/artist known to man. Even Thomas Dolby!
- CEO Elizabeth Iorns’ excited exclamation that Ernest Rutherford was a kiwi.
- Team Pasteur’s many name changes: Team Pasteur => Pasteur’s Pasture => Pastry => Patrizzle earning them Microryza t-shirts.
- Everyone learning they’re seasoning their food with halite.
A huge thanks to everyone that came, we’re looking forward to many more to come. Stay tuned!
