Night of Science Trivia
While many students may be exposed to physics as a general requirement in the college of liberal arts and sciences, they may not find the subject inviting or approachable. Similarly, students who are majoring in physics tend to be secluded to their own population of physic student since they don't have to take classes in biology or chemistry. This creates a divide in the science community, and it starts early on in university academia. This makes it harder for scientists and the general population alike to find connections between sciences.
The Night of Science Trivia is an event for student to create a positive environment and outlook on hard sciences, such as physics, via an engaging and fun atmosphere. The goal of the event is to promote self-efficacy in science and cross-disciplinary interaction and discussion among science-minded people. Teams of 2-5 people will compete in a trivia show-styled game answering questions in the categories of physics, astronomy, biology, chemistry, history, and pop culture. The range of topics is meant to encourage people for many disciplines to team up and also provides conversation on the connection between these subjects.
