Eaton students compete in a trivia competition in a CDOT assembly

Most people would not find anything fun or exciting about learning driving-related statistics and dangerous driving habits, but it turns out ThinkFast Interactive has. When a dance competition, skits and trivia are all put together, not to mention a chance to win a $100, another unexciting assembly becomes an intense competition.

Students arranged themselves into small groups of four and chose a leader for each group. The ThinkFast Interactive presenter provided all of the group leaders with remotes to answer the questions while the possible answers were displayed on screens, so the groups usually had four answers to pick from for each question. The trivia had to do with everything from celebrities and geography to dangerous driving practices and driving-related statistics. But, ThinkFast Interactive took the assembly to the next level when four people were chosen to compete against each other in a dance competition. Addie Randel (20) triumphed over the other three when the various teams voted her as being the best dancer, giving her the chance to compete for the final $100. Taking it up another notch, the presenter picked two people, Jose Silva (20) and Janae Jarnagin (19) to perform in small impromptu skits. The two were both asked to pretend that the presenter was about to go driving while being drunk and to attempt to stop him. Though Jarnagin enthusiastically screamed and begged the presenter not to go driving, even going so far as to grab at him, Silva came out victorious and received the opportunity to compete in the final round for $100. In this last round, Randel, Jarnagin, Silva, and Jarred Smith (21) all fought for the $100 for them and their team. Only one of these individuals could come out victorious though, and Silva was the one who won the prize money for him and his team. Silva said, “I felt like I was untouchable.”  He also said that the assembly “was the best one so far that I’ve been a part of.”
