Are you as Smart as a CRLS Student?
Wednesday, March 16 | 7PM | Fitzgerald Theatre
Do you remember all the elements on the periodic table? How about the formula for determining the length of an arc on a circle? Who was that president who served after Grover Cleveland? What was the #1 music hit in 2014? Questions similar to these will be asked at the Cambridge Rindge and Latin Community Academic Challenge entitled “Are You As Smart As A CRLS Student?” Mr. Billy Costa, a Cambridge alum and the host of the WGBH-TV “High School Quiz Show” will be the moderator.
