Hello EVDL,

As part of the NEAT EV EVent near Roanoke Rapids, NC on Nov. 19th and
20th, we are creating a Jeopardy like contest for the high school
participants using an educational software package from . We need to create at least 6 "Jeopardy" like
games where each game has 5 categories with 5 questions each. So we
might have one game with the following categories:
Safety, Battery Terms, Fast Cars, Pollution, Get the Lead out,
Associated with each of these categories will be 5 questions with 5
possible A, B C, D & E answers such as under Safety:

1) Baking Soda is used to?
A) enhance the head of a Beer
B) spread on icy roads for traction
C) mix with battery acid to extend the range of an EV
D) neutralize a lead acid spill
E) mix with dough in making a cake

2) The big red ball in an EV is used for?

3) Goggles:

4) Cable shears are used for:

5) Plastic goo is used to coat tools so:

I think you get the idea. We are going to email the schools the
categories and questions **but not the answers.** This way the students
will have time to read up on the categories and questions.
What we would like from you all are additional categories and questions
for those categories.
Keep in mind, we could have 10, 15, 20 questions under Battery Terms.
Battery Terms could be a category in 2, 3, or 4 games. There may be
that many questions.

Anyway, I will be collecting, collating, and trying to think of cool
answers as well as correct ones. If you feel so inclined, we would
appreciate answers also. The main focus right now is creating a total
of 30 to 40 categories with 5 questions each.

Please send your input as a reply to this email or to:



PS If you have any questions or comments, feel free to ask them.
