Is a bee sting acidic or alkaline?
Which element has the shortest name?
What compound gives Mars its distinctive red color?
If you think you know the answers to these questions, you should have been at the Cocktails with Chemists Group virtual happy hour and trivia night on October 7! Over Zoom, we had three rounds of ten questions with some fun conversation in between. Answers had to be typed in the chat, so nimble-fingered scholars had quite an advantage. We had a mix of industry colleagues, students and professors participating. Michael, a Washington University graduate student, was crowned champion at the end of the last round.
Our next event is in November, date TBD, but join the Meetup group to get the details. We will have a Chemistry in Your House Scavenger Hunt over Zoom. Get ready to gather up household items only identified by their chemical names.
