Last night, Bay Area biologists, physicists, engineers, and one geologist came together to answer the most pressing scientific questions.

Tesla_circa_1890    Things like (answers are below):

    What is the name of the band that sings Weird Science?

    What two categories did Marie Curie win her Nobel Prize in?   

    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!

Answers: Oingo Boingo, Physics and Chemistry, Nikola Tesla
