Pre-Registration to Knovel Academic Challenge is Now Open!
Pre-registration to the Knovel Academic Challenge is now open to the STEM community!
The Knovel Academic Challenge (KAC)
The KAC is a 5-week problem set-based global game for undergraduate and graduate engineering students. These problem sets are built from real-life engineering exercises and scenarios. Every Monday of each week, a 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 the grand prize winners will be announced at the end of week 5. The first problem set will go live on Monday, 28 September 2015 at 12:00:00 AM PST and the last set going out on Sunday, 01 November 2015 at 11:59:59 PM PST.
In order to join the competition, one must first register at the KAC site. Registration remains open throughout the 5-week challenge.
