The Chem Study Drinking Game
The Chem Study Drinking Game was played numerous times during Period 3 Honors Chemistry in the 1994-1995 school year. It was also played once during a special meeting of the Bill Nye the Science Guy Club. Beverages used for the game have included Pepsi, Dr. Pepper, water, Sunny Delight, Capri-Sun, and Hi-C.
This game is based on the Bill Nye Drinking Game, found online during the dark ages of the internet.
If you're ready to party, many of these thrilling films are available online for your viewing pleasure!
