19 Oct iGenius Supernova
“All it takes is 1% inspiration to be a genius.
The rest is hard work and determination”
iGenius Supernova is an Annual Quiz Competition organized by the Rotaract Club of Colombo Midtown. This year it was held on on the 1st of September at the Namel Malini Punchi Theatre, Colombo 08 from 9.00 a.m onwards, with a massive participation of over 30 teams, each comprising 4 members. The Quiz was open to members from not only Rotaract but also to Rotarians of Rotary International District 3220, Interactors, University Undergraduates, Tertiary Education Institutes and Corporates as well. Team RACUOCFMF included Sachinthani Abeyasekera, Sandani Saparamadu, Ravisha Saparamadu and Joel Mark.
iGenius consisted of 8 main Rounds. The first four Rounds included Audio and Visual Rounds and covered questions from the World around us in general, Sports and the Entertainment Industry. There were 10 questions in each Round and some of them were absolutely mind twisting and unexpected as promised by the description on the Event Page! - “How many times does blood filter through the liver per day?”, “What is Betelgeuse?”, “Who is the singer of a Boy with luv” to name a few.
The 5th Round was all about making connections between 12 words given on screen. We personally found this challenging and interesting as we came up with connections that were out of this world. The next Round was the “Flag Round” where we had to draw flags of different countries, name the country and the capital city. Team RACUOCFMF thoroughly enjoyed this Round in which we were able to secure a considerable amount of points. Unfortunately the calculated scores following this Round denied our opportunity of proceeding to the Top 15 Teams.
