The individual competition consists of two sections. A 25 item multiple-choice test (1 pt. each) and a 5 question free response problem solving test (5 pts each). After a break for refreshments, each grade-level team of 4 students competes on a team test made up of 5 questions. Each problem is worth 20 points. Teams may use calculators for this test. Next is a hands-on activity where the students compete as a grade-level team. This hands-on team activity will be a challenging event designed to solve a particular problem using certain types of materials. Separate awards are given for this activity. Following the hands-on activity, awards are presented to individuals, grade-level teams, and schools.
