Cephalopod Week Trivia Night

Science Friday and Columbia’s Zuckerman Institute come together to bring you a tentacled and brainy Cephalopod Week Trivia Night!

Join us for a jam-packed evening that’s part science-y facts and mind-blowing knowledge experience, celebrating our favorite invertebrates: cephalopods, like squid, cuttlefish, and octopuses! Bring your nerdy team together (or bravely play solo) to win ultimate bragging rights—and some real prizes, too. Gather your poddy and test your squiddy knowledge!

Hosted by Diana Plasker of Science Friday and Dr. Diana Li of the Zuckerman Institute.

$8 early bird (until June 11, 09:30 PM)
$10 standard
$15 at the door
