High School Quiz Show
WGBH, our public television station, is starting a new show based on the old College Bowl theme, a quiz show for high school students. It is called -- tah dah! -- High School Quiz Show.
I went with friends today for the taping of one of the segments. We arrived to find kids making posters to cheer on their school team, and we enjoyed watching the healthy competition as kids tried to answer questions in math, science, literature, history, social studies, and the like.
The show's MC is one of my former MIT students, Dhaya Lakshminarayanan. I am not quite sure what aspect of her MIT training prepared her for this career, but she is terrific in this role.
The show will be broadcast on Monday's starting on March 22, at 7:30pm.
