More than 40 students participated in this year’s BioTrivia contest, a collaborative event led by Dr. Mark Liles, Dr. Paul Cobine, Valerie Tisdale, Kat West, and Dr. Robert Boyd. Five student clubs worked together to compete. Students from Lambda Tau, Marine Biology, Microbiology, Society for Conservation Biology, and Tri-Beta participate with interesting categories such as “The Microbial World” and “Deadly Biology” in the contest.

“It is important for students to learn and have fun,” said Dr. Mark Liles. “This event brings students together to share their knowledge and love of biology, and compete as teams to earn cool prizes like the Hawaiian Volcano Shrimp ecospheres! Everyone who participated left with a belly full of pizza and with a prize.”

Students won an array of prizes including these Hawaiian Volcano Shrimp ecospheres contributed by the Chair of the Biological Sciences Department, Dr. Scott Santos.
