Science Friday Virtual Trivia Night

SciFri is taking a break from our virtual Trivia Nights for now—you can still join our newsletter to get updates about upcoming events!

Join us every week for Science Friday Virtual Trivia Nights! SciFri Trivia is a weekly gathering that’s part science-y facts, part dance party, and part pop culture romp—and it’s for anyone looking to bring together teams (or bravely play solo) to win ultimate bragging rights.

It’s not all science (or Science Friday) trivia, but let’s just say it wouldn’t hurt to listen to last week’s SciFri radio show. You might even catch a glimpse of recognizable Science Friday staff member! 😉 RSVP for our email newsletter below to receive updates.

Here’s how to play:

  • Assemble your team and choose a way to stay connected if your teammates are playing from different locations.
    • Set up a phone call, chat or video call separate from the main trivia YouTube livestream. Ask everyone to wear headphones, so there’s no echo of the livestream from different computers—or, ask one person to share their screen and show the livestream to all team members in a Zoom, Google Meet, or Discord group call.
    • We suggest all players join via computer for the best experience.
  • Prep the answer forms. For each round, each team will submit one form with their answers. If you’re playing with multiple players, choose a Team Captain to submit all the forms. Mind the formatting rules!
  • Join the livestream! We start at 8:30 pm ET sharp. See you then!

We’ll announce the winner at the end of trivia night, and keep a running leaderboard.
