Quizzing is the best way to check the alertness and extent of knowledge of a student. Each year we take the quiz competition based on the theme of Stimulus. Most questions are taken from the projects exhibited by various other students which the quiz candidates are expected to go through prior to the competition. Some questions may come from the common knowledge available through text-books, TV, newspapers, etc. As the quiz is based on the theme of Stimulus, we will allow time for all participants to view the project exhibition before the interschool rounds begin. At each stage and each batch of quiz, there are between 3 to 5 teams competing. Language is English with translation in Marathi & Hindi if needed. Wherever possible we batch the teams according to their academic level and language.

 

The topic is Astronomy and Space Science

The topic covers the wonders of the universe and the ways by which we come to know of them. It covers the stars and planets and comets and galaxies and the many things in between these. How do we learn about these things? What do telescopes do? Why do we go to space? How rockets work? Why are stars bright? What are black holes? ... and so on.

1) Theme for a previous Stimulus - has many links topic-wise
