Pop Culture Trivia Nights (just a mention of boats & the ocean)

March 1 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Boats are all around us – from the canoe episode in Friends to the Beatles’ “Yellow Submarine,” popular culture is full of ships, boats, and the ocean! Join Penobscot Marine Museum and Carver Memorial Library for 4 nights of pop culture trivia that includes a mention of boats or the ocean. We’ll include the obvious, like Moby Dickand Master and Commander, and we’ll also ask questions relating to the more obscure, like the Shakespeare scene on board a ship in a storm or the schooner WOODWIND II that was included in a 2011 romantic comedy… Fight the midwinter cabin fever and test your knowledge! The game and instructions will be offered through Zoom, so make sure you’ve got your laptop, smartphone, or tablet all charged up. Dust off that copy of The Perfect Storm and look around for that Jaws VHS – you have some studying to do! Stop by Carver Memorial Library for suggested reading & watching lists. Sign up here for reminder emails.

Fun for all trivia buffs and casual participants! In addition to glory and bragging rights, the winner each week will receive a choice of a PMM family admission pass or an 11×14 print featuring an image of their choosing from the PMM photo archives.

We will be using Zoom and Kahoot for each of our sessions. We encourage you to have a laptop AND a smartphone, tablet, or other device on hand! Use your laptop to join the Zoom meeting so you can see the event host’s shared screen along with your fellow trivia lovers. Then, use your other device to go to www.kahoot.it, or download the Kahoot app, and enter in the game PIN that will be displayed on Zoom. This will allow you to see the trivia questions and answer choices on the Zoom screen, and then select the answer on your other device. If you don’t have another device handy, that’s no problem! Just type www.kahoot.it in a new window on your browser. After you read the question and see the answer choices on Zoom, change your tab to Kahoot and select the color that corresponds with the answer choice you think is correct!
