TED Talks at FSQL 2015

TED Talks are one of our favourite ways to stay curious. We run the Firodia School Quiz League in Pune, India, which consists of 5 quizzes on different themes. Each quiz has a 30-45 min break between the written preliminary and the stage finals, and we made good use of it by playing some TED talks for participants to watch, learn from, enjoy, and be inspired. Here's our playlist:

Quiz 1: History and Heritage

The History of Our World in 18 Minutes - David Christian

Quiz 2: Sports

The rise of cricket, the rise of India - Harsha Bhogle

Quiz 3: Science & Technology

Optical illusions show how we see - Beau Lotto

Underwater Astonishments  - David Gallo

Quiz 4: Travel & Geography

Magical houses, made of bamboo - Ellora Hardy

Quiz 5: Entertainment & Culture

Hack a banana, make a keyboard - Jay Silver
