I know that as a student, it can be hard to be aware of all the various competitions or science fairs that are happening, especially over a wider geographical region. I think we should help each other out, and be aware of various events that could be interesting. By keeping others in the loop about such events, we can all benefit from the greater exposure.

In the comments below, I have listed some geographical regions (International, US, India, Asia, Brazil, UK) If there are events in those regions that you think others may be interested in, please add them as a comment to the relevant region. If you do not see your region, feel free to start a comment, and then add on the events underneath it.

If you find this useful, let us know and we'd create quarterly (or even monthly) updates for your easy reference. For now, let's keep it to the end of 2013, to increase the relevance to others.

Yea, if you score high enough on USAMTS to qualify for AIME, then there is no reason that you couldn't qualify for the AIME through AMC unless you had a spectacularly bad day. Even if you are worse at timed competitions than otherwise, the disparity in difficulty between the two competitions is so great that I can't imagine it happening.Log in to reply

Science Bowl is a nation-wide competition like quiz bowl or jeopardy where four teammates (with an alternate if desired) compete against another team of four players. A moderator reads various questions from the categories Life Science, Physical Science, Earth and Space Science, Energy, Mathematics, and General Science (MS topics) or Biology, Chemistry, Astronomy, Energy, Mathematics, and General Science (HS topics). There are two categories of questions: Toss Up and Bonus. Toss Up questions are read, and if any team member on your team gets the toss up question correct, their team only will have a chance to answer the bonus question for that corresponding toss up question. Toss up questions are worth less than bonus questions. The moderator will also read the answer form, multiple choice or short answer. Each of these response types will have different rules regarding accepting correct answers. Team members are not allowed to communicate at any time during the round except during a bonus question. The captain and captain only answers the bonus questions. Any school can join as long as you register with your regional coordinator. Students are limited to 3 years of MS Science Bowl and 4 years of HS Science Bowl. A regional competition will be hosted in your school's vicinity, and the coordinator will probably notify you well ahead of time. The top team at each regional competition will get to go to an all expenses paid trip to Washington D.C. for a 5 day, 4 night national competition.Log in to reply

Other than the fact that most regions have their ARML (http://www.arml.com) tryouts by the end of the year or at the latest January, people in the Chicago region may be interested in submitting a project to the QED Math Symposium (http://qed.wpcp.org/). It is like a Science Fair but focuses on math projects. Anyone can join and there are prizes for every participant! The website has not been updated in a while but word on the street is that projects will be due around the end of November.

You can participate in NMO (check sms.edu.pk) with problems very similar to the ones seen over here. Unfortunately the last date for registration was September 25, 2013. If you've missed this one then by all mean take part in NMTC (http://win.nstc.edu.pk/NSTC/registration10.asp). Both of these competitions select team to be selected for the international maths olympiad. The earlier you know about them the better.Log in to reply

physicscompetition. Our website has basic information about who we are and what we do. Our Facebook Page is currently running a competition where we post problems 2-3 times per week and people who answer questions get points. The first to 100 points gets a free IPhOO T-shirt.Our very first contest was a huge success and many people who participated found out about us at Brilliant, since I talk a little bit about the IPhOO here.

Contests 2 and 3 have already been scheduled and those who register on our website get updates about Contests. The contest is free for all and quite frequently held. So if you like Physics and don't see enough online to do, the IPhOO is for you.

And, yes, don't forget to like us on our Facebook page to get updates, problems, prizes, and more! – Ahaan Rungta · 3 years, 10 months ago
