MIT Club of Boston Science Trivia Challenge

The Science Trivia Challenge is a friendly, spirited contest hosted by the MIT Club of Boston that is part of the Cambridge Science Festival, organized annually by the MIT Museum. The eleventh annual Challenge is scheduled for Wednesday evening, April 17, 2019 at the Broad Institute of MIT & Harvard, 7 Cambridge Center, in Kendall Square, Cambridge, MA. It is a live team trivia quiz where contestants are challenged on their knowledge of biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, astronomy, computer science, earth sciences, inventions, local contributions to science and other subjects. The information might be useful or purely trivial and might test knowledge of scientific methods, theories, or history. Teams have to be ready for anything, and any team can win!

The Challenge is a contest between teams which consist of students in 12th grade or lower (High School or Middle School). The maximum team size in any given round is five players, but teams can have up to five alternates. Middle School Teams are limited to students through grade 8, with a limit of one team from any one school. High School Teams are limited to students through grade 12, with a limit of two teams per school. Teams are entered on a first-come, first-served basis until the event capacity is reached, so it is best to register early.
