Adam Walton and the quiz teams

Recorded as part of the recent Wrexham Science Festival, the programme set up shop in the cosy surroundings of the pub, and asked the two teams a wide range of questions covering all corners of science from the periodic table to distant stars.

Will the quick buzzer fingers of the pub quiz regulars outwit the scientific know-how of the Glyndwr academics? Listen in to find out. To get your braincells warmed up, try out these sample questions:

  • What does an ichthyologist study?
  • What is the chemical formula for dry ice?
  • Which Swedish chemist invented dynamite?
