Question: What’s an Awesome Way to Support a Young Engineer?
Answer: Attend Trivia Night hosted by Houston E-Week!
When: Monday, February 22, 2021 at 7:00 pm
The Houston Engineers Week Committee is excited to announce that the Houston E-Week events will be hosted 100% virtually in February 2021. There were many factors that led to the decision of transitioning from in-person to virtual events, but the most important was the health and safety of participants of this great organization.
We have additional good news to share – by making this decision now, we will be able to plan and deliver the best possible Houston E-Week virtually! We will build on the lessons learned during our virtual committee meetings. For the Houston Engineers Week this coming February, we will be focusing on improving and expanding events and activities that really make Houston E-Week stand out.
What is a Virtual Trivia Night?
Houston Engineers Week will have our first ever Virtual Trivia Night for the Virtual Young Engineers of the Year (a 90-minute event). You will join this event through Zoom on your computer, laptop, cell phone or Smart TV. Your team will have a chance to virtually go into a Zoom breakout room where you will have time to discuss your answer choice. There will be a clock ticking down the time for this chatting. Once you have decided on the answer, a designated team captain will submit the answer through a website account that will be given to you beforehand. You will be awarded points based on if the answer is correct and extra points for the team who answers the fastest. Sorry, there are no Mulligans in Virtual Trivia. However, every question will be multiple choice, so you have a 1 out of 4 chance of getting the right answer.
Let us map out what you will do to sign up and be ready for this unique and lively event step by step:
1. Decide if you want to physically gather with those in your organization or stay in your own home. It does not matter which you choose to do. You can still play as a team through the Zoom breakout rooms. You can have up to 6 people to a team. Each round will contain one category.
2. Decide on a team name and who is the captain. Only one person per group will be able to submit the answers to the hosting website. Be sure to pick someone who is quick on texting/typing!
3. Team captains will get instructions on connecting to the website that the platform will use for submitting answers.
4. Houston E-Week will have Trivia Masters hosting the event and will provide further game and team details in January.
Prizes will be awarded, too. The money raised will go towards the continued successes of Houston Engineers Week and Student Scholarships. We hope you will join us!
