The RWTH Aachen University Chapter of SIAM (Aachen, Germany) held its first Science Jeopardy Night in April. In the first round, teams of four candidates were quizzed on questions from more or less scientific categories like “Algorithms,” “Plots,” and “May the force be with you.” When no candidate could provide the correct answer, somebody from the audience could partake and win a special prize.
After completion of the initial rounds, the remaining competitors participated in the final round. In the end, SIAM student chapter officer Alexander Jaust emerged the clear victor. All participants won prizes, ranging from SIAM mugs and pens to MathWorks shirts and backpacks. Local company d-fine graciously sponsored the evening, which included snacks and beverages for everybody. The event was a great success and will surely be repeated soon! For those interested in learning more, the LaTeX template for the event can be found at GitHub under the project name “SIAMSC_jeopardy.” To read more about activities at the RWTH Aachen University Chapter of SIAM, visit the chapter blog.
