Science in the Pub Quiz

On Wednesday 5th December we have our annual PubSci quiz. As usual we will have homegrown questions that don’t involve soaps, sports or “celebrities”, but they may involve cake. The fun of taking part aside, we will also have cash prizes, spot prizes and of course peer-reviewed drinking.

It’s just £3 to enter and with a maximum team size of six, although you can come on your own or in smaller groups and join up with others on the night. So join us upstairs at the Old King’s Head, near the Borough Road exit from London Bridge station. Doors open at 6:30pm for a prompt 7.30pm start – we hope to see you there!

Science (Quiz) in the Pub

For December’s Science In The Pub there will be a science-themed pub quiz hosted by Kash Farooq and James Longstaff. The usual PubSci hosts Paolo and James get a night off – as they will be taking part in the quiz.

And, thanks to our good friends at the British Science Association, there will be some appropriately geeky/sciencey prizes that we will dish out as we see fit!

We suggest that you form teams of 3 or 4 people. Don’t worry if you don’t have have enough people – just turn up. We’re a friendly bunch and we’re sure we can get everyone into a team.

It might also be a good idea to “mix disciplines” when forming a team – each round will have questions from various areas of science. We’ve been busy thinking up questions for a few weeks now and have come up with a fairly wide variety.

To give you a clue of the sort of questions to expect, here are the categories we came up when we were thinking up questions:

  • Chemistry
  • Scientists
  • Geology
  • Astronomy/Space
  • Physics
  • Biology

See you on Tuesday 6th December from 7:30, upstairs at the Brixton Ritzy!
