Rules

Think you know Spark? Test your knowledge on science and technology with the IEEE Spark Challenge!

The IEEE Spark Challenge Rules

  1. Players are automatically placed on one of the four Spark character teams.
  2. Points are earned by answering questions correctly.
    • For every question, you can earn up to 10 points. If you answer questions correctly on the first try, you will always gain 10 points.
    • Every time you answer a question incorrectly, 2 points will be subtracted from total amount you can earn per question. If you answer it correctly on the second try, you'll earn 8; on the third try, you'll earn 6; and so on.
    • After 5 wrong tries, you won't earn any points.
  3. Stumped? You may pass a question at any time if you don't know the answer.

Answer the questions right on the first try to earn the most points for your team. A leaderboard will show you which team is winning! Good Luck Spark Challengers!!
