BOSS Online: The BOSS Students' Quiz - Tuesday 21st April

Quizzes have been very popular with our BOSS Online students. So much so that they are requesting them every week! We decided however that this week, rather than us preparing the quiz, our students would prepare the quiz by each bringing 5 questions of their own. Some of the questions were nice and easy while one of the questions was the most difficult question ever in the history of the world!


If anyone can answer the below question, as known as the most difficult question in the world, we’ll give you a million house points in credit for you to bank until you can come to BOSS in person. That is a guaranteed pizza. Here it is:



We didn't know the answer either:



If you were unable to make it to today's session, you can watch it in full below to see how the students' quiz unfolded!



Takeaways from today's session


- Tomorrow we will have The BOSS Film Club and discuss the film Spirited Away (PG). We have chosen to watch Spirited Away as it is one of the top ranked films of all time with a score of 8.6/10 on IMDb.com and it is available on Netflix.


Spirited Away is a wondrous fantasy about a young girl named Chihiro who discovers a secret world of strange spirits, creatures and sorcery. When her parents are mysteriously transformed, she must call upon the courage she never knew she had to free herself and return her family to the outside world.


- On Thursday we will have the first project of the week – BOSS does “TED Talks”. Yes, again! The students enjoyed it so much that they want to do it again!


A TED Talk is a showcase for speakers presenting great, well-formed ideas and we are asking students to talk for a minimum of 90 seconds and a maximum of 3 minutes.


What should you talk about?


You can talk about one of two things: Something that’s new and surprising; an idea or invention that your audience has never heard about.


A very simple idea, maybe something that your audience has already heard about but with your new idea that challenges what people may already know.


For inspiration, head to YouTube and check out the TED Talks channel where you will find the best talks and performances from the world's leading thinkers and doers. There are thousands that you could check out.


- Finally, on Friday we will have our second project of the week – BOSS TV! TV shows don't just magically appear on screens. They might look slick and seamless, but it’s because of incredible amounts of work and preparation for each episode. So why not see if we can make our own TV show? Let’s develop an idea, write a script and design the set. Let’s bring BOSS TV to BOSS Online with our imaginations and creativity.


For the BOSS TV activity, we are asking students to find their favourite piece of positive news from the week. They will then read their news as if they were a news reporter in our very own TV show!
