Looking for trivia app for bright 8 year old

Like everyone approaching the one year anniversary of staying home, our 8 year old is BORED. He likes trivia. Is there a cool trivia app that he would enjoy playing either alone or with others? Doesn’t have to be kid focused. He thinks he’s ready for all things grown up.

Memrise is addictive and fun if you're the sort of person to enjoy a flashcard app, which I am. I'd have quite enjoyed this at 8.

Not sure if it counts as an app, but my grandkids like Kahoot and we played together with multiple households using Zoom.

In case you're reasonably near the Eastern time zone of the US, the North Carolina Museum of Natural History hosts virtual trivia every Tuesday evening -- it's a lot of fun, questions at a range of knowledge levels, and kid-friendly. Sometimes there is a Raleigh or North Carolina bias in the questions (eg. what species of whale do we have in this exhibit), but not often.

It also uses the Kahoot app (or a web-browser), and the host gives questions via a youtube livestream. There's a trivia tonight!
