Pint Trivia - where teams battle it out over science knowledge for ultimate bragging rights.

Like last year, this event is an online, iso-friendly, pub-less pub trivia where you can flex your brain muscles from the comfort of your own couch (or perhaps even someone else's).

Play as an individual, a household, or gather a bunch of friends to catch up and compete. Last year, we saw some online collaborations between friends and family members in different states. You could even get a team together at your local pub (restrictions permitting). We don't mind - just make sure you register!

Keep an eye on our social channels. There's a daily question during the lead-up to the festival to get your brain juices flowing. Answering all the Pint Challenge questions right may even give you a subtle advantage in the main Trivia event ...

Hosted by two science superstars, Pint of Science Trivia will cover all six Pint of Science themes - Atoms to Galaxies, Planet Earth, Our Body, Beautiful Mind, Tech Me Out and Our Society - across three rounds.
