There is no doubt that Smithsonian curators are experts in their field. But how much do people know about the work they do? Well now the public has a chance to test its knowledge and match wits with a Smithsonian curator and see who comes out on top.
How? Take the on-line Are You Smarter Than A Curator quiz.
This month you can go head-to-head with Heidi Hellmuth, curator of Enrichment and Training at The National Zoo.
The quiz is more than just a fun way for participants to gauge their expertise—it is also a great way to support the National Zoo.
Correct answers earn 10 cents for the Zoo’s animal care program. Each individual has the potential to generate 50 cents for the Zoo. Multiply that by 100,000, and the Zoo could get $50,000! The Zoo’s quiz will remain live until April 8.
There is one catch- by taking the quiz, you are agreeing to receive future e-mails from Friends of the Smithsonian. You can unsubscribe at any time.
