IQ Inc Virtual Tech Trivia

Tuesday, June 30th | 5:30 - 6:30 PM. 

Quarantine has affected us all in one way or another and a little taste of normalcy and fun can go a long way during these strange and difficult times - which makes this event more exciting than ever for us to have the chance to host.

Expect much of the same format that we've had in the past - 3 rounds of 10 multiple choice questions that are a mix of technical and pop culture questions.

The questions are formatted so that most anyone can participate - even if you are not a tech guru (It'll certainly help if you are, though!!) 

In order to participate - you MUST RSVP via Eventbrite where we will have the link for the ZOOM meeting listed, which you will use to participate. 

EventBrite RSVP:  https://www.eventbrite.com/e/iq-inc-virtual-tech-trivia-tickets-110309354248  
 
IMPORTANT: IF YOU ARE PARTICIPATING AS A TEAM (TEAMS OF UP TO 6 PEOPLE ARE ALLOWED) IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU RSVP BY NEXT MONDAY (6/29) AND LIST EACH OF YOUR TEAM MEMBERS ON YOUR RSVP SO THAT OUR HOST CAN ORGANIZE YOUR ZOOM BREAKOUT ROOMS AT THE BEGINNING OF THE EVENT - MAKE SURE YOUR TEAM IS LOGGED IN 10 MINUTES EARLY (5:20) TO ALLOW US TO ORGANIZE YOUR TEAM. 

IQ Inc. is VERY excited at the opportunity to host this event and are sure it will be a blast - so invite your friends and family, have your favorite beverage and snacks on hand and get ready for a fun night of trivia from the comfort of your own home!!!
