Brainiac Bowl

You’ve sharpened your wits to the point of perfection; now it’s time to let the world know just how much you know about science, history, and popular culture. The best part about it is that the knowledge doesn’t end there. Your participation in the Brainiac Bowl will help to fund the ongoing environmental education programs for students of all ages at the Aldo Leopold Nature Center.

The evening includes a delicious dinner and decadent dessert, two drink tickets, the opportunity to win in a drawing for fantastic prizes, a Crazy Costume contest, and the chance to outsmart some of Madison’s finest minds during the Brainiac Bowl Championship.

Participants may enter individually, or as a group. Competing teams are made up of eight players. If you don’t have a team, we’ll match you up with like-minded folks.

Entry Fee:
Individual/ $125
Table of Eight /$1,000
