Win a Clever Apes lab coat!

(WBEZ/Andrew Gill)

It’s been just over a year since WBEZ started this science experiment called Clever Apes. We’ve explored the cosmos, delved into the origins of consciousness, and even won a couple broadcasting awards along the way.

To celebrate, we’re running a little raffle with a grand prize of a nifty lab coat similar to the ones modeled by Gabriel and myself above. We’re asking for two things from you, answer either one for a chance to win. Here are the details:


We’re embarrassed to admit that our lil’ ape mascot has no name. Help us out with your name suggestions.



Is there a scientific idea that has got you stumped? Want to suggest a topic for an upcoming show? Go for it, and you’ll be entered into the drawing.


1. Call the Clever Apes hotline (yeah, it’s no Bat Phone, but it gets the job done). Dial 312-893-2935, leave your suggestion or question, and don’t forget to leave your name and a contact number.

2. Like us on Facebook and write your name suggestion or question on our wall.

3. Leave your suggestion/question in the comment section below.

4. And hey, while we’re at it, why not follow us on Twitter and tweet your idea/suggestion? Use #AskAnApe in your tweet.

However you enter, don’t forget to give us a legit way to contact you if you win!
