The 7th Annual University Challenge Kicks off Today, with a 2012 twist: additional prizes will be awarded on a weekly basis, giving students 12 more opportunities to win.
The Challenge is open to all undergraduate science & engineering students and is a super fun way to test your Knowledge and win great prizes! Last year, students from more than 600 universities worldwide submitted more than 12,000 entries in the University Challenge. This year, The Challenge offers new questions each week, so there’s even more opportunities for students to test their skills and win big.
Here’s the Skinny:
What is It: The Knovel University Challenge allows students to compete for prizes while learning how to use the research tools they’ll need to complete assignments and ultimately succeed in the workplace.
Who Can Play: All science and engineering students currently enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate degree program.
When Can I Play? The University Challenge is now open and will run through December 1, 2012 ! Go to www.knoveluniversitychallenge.com today to play.
What Will I be Asked? The Knovel University Challenge presents a series of questions on engineering-related topics, and students are encouraged to use Knovel and related features to find the correct answers.
(Drum Roll Please) What Are the Prizes?
