The Purple Comet Competition is an international math competition for high school and middle school students. High school students have to solve 30 problems in 90 minutes. They are permitted calculators and books, but no internet tools. The competition is open for one week. The competition is sponsored by AwesomeMath. There is no prize, but there is the thrill of competing with 10,000 students from 59 countries. Greg Perez and Blake George accepted the challenge.
The Science Competition includes a written test and various other activities. Questions are related to math, chemistry, physics, and biology. The participants included Carter Campbell, Dom Dedola, Adam Lewis, and Angelo Giunta.
During the Propaganda Competition Students watch video segments and determine the type of propaganda used. Some examples include post hoc, tabloid thinking, and ambiguity. Katie Mozelewski, Maria Czura, Hailey Helpenstell, and Jonah Albert (not pictured) accepted the challenge for this event!
