Spark Blog: Twitter Trivia

Alan Alda in The Human Spark

Think you know what it means to be human? Can you think creatively, make tools, communicate with the use of language and make moral judgments? Can you use Google and Twitter?

If so, wrangle with these trivia questions to receive free science DVDs.

  • When was Charles Darwin born?
  • When were the Lascaux cave paintings discovered?
  • What animal is our closest living relative?
  • What science series did Alan Alda host prior to The Human Spark?

Send the answers to BrainDish, THIRTEEN’s brand new Twitter account.  The thirteenth person to answer all four questions correctly will receive a free DVD box set of our INNOVATION series and a box set of The Human Spark when it premiers.

Here’s how it works:

1. Tweet your answers to @BrainDish in the following format:
@BrainDish 1) dd/mm/yyyy 2) dd/mm/yyyy 3) animal 4) series name

2. Don’t forget to follow us @BrainDish for future contests and updates.

3. Sit back and wait to see if you’re a winner.

That’s it!  So simple, even a chimp could do it!

BrainDish is THIRTEEN Science’s official new Twitter feed. We’ll be tweeting out our musings on the latest science and technology news you didn’t know you needed to know. It’s also a great way to stay up to date on the behind-the-scenes action and upcoming programs and contests from THIRTEEN’s science department.  So put your money where your mouth is, your mind where your thumbs are, and give us a tweet!
