The Stemity Science Competition is a 30 question, 35 minute contest that will test contestants on a variety of scientific phenomena across all fields of science. Suggested study topics and resources can be found below.

Registration

The Science Contest 2 will be held from June 1st, 2020 9:00AM PDT to June 25th, 2020 6:00PM PDT. You can sign up and take the contest anywhere within that date range.

Once you start the test your timer will begin and you will have 35 minutes to answer all questions and submit your test. You cannot save and come back later and the test needs to be finished in one sitting. You can only take the test once in that time window and will not be allowed a second try.

To summarize, you have the flexibility of choosing when to start your test within the active window, but once started it needs to be completed within 35 minutes for your score to be ranked.
