The Mercaptans

The Mercaptans, champions at the 2014 Chem Trivia Night: Darcy Ahern ’15, Emeritus Professor Brad Mundy, Eddie Chuang ’14, Professor Julie Millard, and Sam Redstone ’15.

The Mercaptans won by a slim margin at the chem club’s first-ever Trivia Night, beating the runners up, Schrodinger and the Cats, by just one point. Questions ranged from popular culture (e.g., What was ET’s favorite candy?), to obscure chemistry facts (e.g., how much sodium is in the human body?),  to hard-core chemistry (e.g., balancing a redox equation).
