BAHS Faculty and Students Rock Biology Trivia

Tri-Beta, the biology honor society, hosted biology trivia for BAHS students and faculty. While eating pizza and snacks, the group pondered dozens of trivia questions and a photo round.  Among the questions were:
What is the lifespan of a freshwater oyster?
What is the common name of animals in the Order Lagomorpha?
Who wrote the 1976 book "The Selfish Gene?"
What illness is responsible for 40% of the military deaths in World War I?
How many NADH molecules are formed in one round of Krebs cycle?
What metal is at the center of chlorophyll a?



The Epigenetic Regulators, the team of Dr. Schwindinger, Kurt Knepley, Jean-Nicole Place, and Jenny Young, took the top prize. Check out the team photos. A good time was had by all!
