Tuesday Trivia Answer: July 31, 2012

The answer to this week’s trivia (“Name one time at which the UI steam whistle is sounded throughout the day,”) is, 8 a.m., noon, 1 p.m., and 5 p.m.

A (loud) University of Iowa tradition, the steam whistle at the UI Power Plant has been sounding the start and end of the work day and lunch break for over 80 years. Despite the advent of modern technology, the whistle is still sounded manually by a plant worker pushing a button!

Check back next week for another chance to participate and win!
