Global Atomic Quiz is a one-day international initiative launched to celebrate World Science Day! To have a bit of nerdy fun on this special occasion, we wanted to challenge you to learn some extraordinary facts about nuclear science – after all, it is all around us – in our homes, in technologies we use, out in nature, and even in outer space, playing a significant role in the life of our Universe.

Are there microorganisms with a superpower to convert elements? What about nuclear reactors that use a mix of metals instead of water as a cooler? Which subatomic particles have not just color and smell, but also charm? Expect the most unexpected questions (physics, atomic and space technologies, natural sciences), and groundbreaking answers!

The quiz questions are divided into two categories: Youth (age 11-16) and Adults (17+). The questions will be chosen accordingly. If you get lucky, you can win cool prizes!
