2020 – PRSSS Virtual Soil Science Trivia

Join the PRSSS in Virtual Soil Science Trivia on Thursday June 18, 2020!

Our first ever virtual pub-style Soil Science themed trivia night using the Zoom application online from 7:00PM to 9:00PM (Pacific Daylight Time) on Thursday June 18, 2020. A registration fee of $2 was given to the Greater Vancouver Foodbank. There was a mix of questions styles to keep things interesting. We had 17 participants and raised over $200 in donations to the Greater Vancouver Foodbank. The following guidelines were followed:

  • Teams of 3 or 4 people
  • Teams must not google answers and will work on the honour system
  • A ‘scribe’ was suggested to write down questions and answers
  • Questions were given in blocks of 10-20 at a time
  • After a block of questions, teams were put into breakout groups to discuss for 10 minutes, then came back to score
  • Teams had a fun soil themed team name
