This past spring, thousands of STEM students from over five hundred institutions around the world took part in the Knovel Academic Challenge (KAC), an immersive problem-set based competition built from real-life engineering exercises and scenarios. We are thrilled to announce pre-registration is now live for the free 5-week Fall Knovel Academic Challenge. Please note, in order to participate this fall, all students and faculty must register (or re-register if you participated in the spring).
The game launches on Monday, September 28 at 12:00:00 AM PST and continues through Sunday, November 1 at 11:59:59 PM PST. Share The Challenge with your STEM community!
The Knovel Academic Challenge is a weekly problem-set based global game for undergraduate and graduate engineering students. The first problem-set will go live on Monday, September 28. On every following Monday for 5 weeks -- until Sunday, November 1 -- a new problem-set containing 7-10 multiple choice questions will be posted.
Over the span of The Challenge, students will log in with their KAC credentials to solve that week's problem-set, and earn points based on their performance while competing for weekly and grand prizes. Weekly winners will be announced each week, and grand prize winners will be announced at the end of the 5 weeks.
*Submission time of problem sets is not a factor when choosing prize winners in the case of a tie.
