SciFri Is Hosting Virtual Trivia Nights—And You’re Invited

Be the most popular person in your group thread: bring your team to the nerdiest virtual trivia night out there, full of science nerdiness!

Science Friday Virtual Trivia Nights

Join us for a special virtual event: Science Goes to the Movies Trivia Night with SciFri and MoMI! We’ve concocted a nerdy night of movie magic that’s part science-y facts, part dance party, and part spooky movie romp, just for you.

This virtual event is for anyone looking to bring together friends and family, or bravely play solo, to win ultimate bragging rights (plus some great prizes!)—and let’s just say it wouldn’t hurt to invite that teammate who has seen Contact more times than they can count.

Plus: Because we’re so close to Halloween, come dressed up in your favorite science movie character (Mark Watney in The Martian, Marie Curie in Radioactive, the sky’s the limit) and you might just win an extra point for your team!

We’ll announce the winner at the end of trivia night who will win a prize box filled with SciFri and MoMI goodies that we’ll send to you in the mail!

  • When: Wednesday, October 27 at 8:30 p.m. ET / 5:30 p.m. PT
  • Where: Science Friday’s YouTube livestream
  • Tickets: Free! Register for more info and reminders.

RSVP to sign up for the Science Friday's Virtual Trivia Nights newsletter! We'll send you info about upcoming events.

We'd love to learn more about you! Below are a few demographic questions. This helps us understand how well we're serving/reaching different audiences. All questions are optional.

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.
