On 4th August all the science geeks came out of their dazzling world of books to represent their houses in the First Science Jeopardy Quiz. Despite burning the night oil for days, they were shocked out of their wits when they saw the questions as they felt underprepared. Mr. Soham Roy and Mr. Sahil Bhardwaj succeeded in proving it to the contestants and the members of the audience that science was not just about books, it has a lot more to it.
The quiz had two rounds and while the first was the regular jeopardy (that the students were familiar with) and equal marks were awarded and deducted for every correct and incorrect answer respectively. What shocked the players were the rules for the second round! The players were informed that they would be getting double points for every correct answer but that they would still lose four times the score upon giving an incorrect answer. The quadruple loss made even the simple answers considerably tough (and undoubtedly risky) for the participants to answer. As a result, Jal House emerged as the only team with a positive score (i.e. more than zero points) while all other teams scored in negatives. The runners-up were the Akashians, followed by Agnians and Prithvites. The event was a smash hit as it not only added to our knowledge but also managed to do so while entertaining. We await the next edition of the same.
