TEST YOUR KNOWLEDGE ABOUT RESEARCH AND RESEARCHERS!
Surprising and entertaining game , played by participants in both Barcelona and Katowice; divided in two teams.
A master of ceremony will read the questions in each place, and the teams will have approximately 3 minutes to provide an answer on each question.
The game will be based on 200 question cards, each card containing a science-related question with 4 possible answers elaborated in an humoristic way. Solution will be on the back of the card, accompanied by explanations, additional information and, if relevant, a link to a website where further material can be found.
Each team will be composed of “ordinary people”, in particular young people, scientists, politicians, journalists, businessmen…of both areas involved and a giant screen will be installed in both places to allow the audience to follow the game.
Each person attending will receive a set of the game so that they will be able to play it at home.
Play and search…, play science! You’ll be surprised…
