Trivia Night


Quincy Abarr

Depauw University

“What is the only genus that is also the name of an animal?”

“What is the term for the stretching of an object due to tidal forces when it enters a black hole?”

If you answered “gorilla” and “spaghettification,” you would have done well at the Trivia Night our SPS chapter held in April. Five teams of students and professors showed up to compete and answer questions from six major categories related to science: physics, math, computer science, geology, biology, and chemistry. We also had a good-sized audience for this fun event, intended to make physics and SPS more visible on our campus. Our members wrote the questions and organized the event as a fun way to make physics and SPS more visible on campus. It was the first time we had done a trivia competition, and we hope it will become an annual event. In the future we would like to add more categories, such as psychology and find ways to get more people to compete! //
