Think you’re as smart as a Cambridge Rindge and Latin (CRLS) student?
I don’t know about you, but I’m not so sure. About myself that is. BUT, If you think you’re up to the challenge of matching wits with Cambridge’s best and brightest, now’s your chance.
Next Thursday, March 29, as part of the yearlong “Celebrate CRLS” program, the first Annual CRLS Community Academic Challenge is being held in the school’s main cafeteria from 7-9 p.m. CRLS’ own Jimmy Tingle (’73) is hosting what promises to be a fun, frustrating, and sometimes hilarious evening.
Let’s see…some hints…do you remember all the elements on the periodic table? No cheating! Who was the president after Grover Cleveland? Stop! No running to Google! What’s the formula for determining the arc of a circle? No cheating…and you don’t get a lifeline, can’t call a friend, or tap something into your smart phones. Just bring your brains and your sense of humor.
Members of the community can either register ahead, or sign up on site. If you come as early as 6, you’ll be able to tour the high school and enjoy seeing the new renovations. To fortify you there’ll be refreshments, to reward you there’ll be prizes, and to soothe you there’ll be music from the CRLS Jazz Ensemble.
So prepare yourself to prove why Cambridge is considered one of the smartest cities in the U.S. Pull out all your knowledge sources, cram, and join CRLS students in a battle of the brains.
And I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to see the adult/student teams face off in the finals!
