Meeting the challenge around the world

Due to the overwhelming response, please note that the map may take some time to fully display all our players and pins!

About this Challenge

To celebrate the International Year of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements (IYPT2019) and the IUPAC centenary, in 2019 we hosted an online challenge about the Periodic Table of the Elements aimed at a global audience of young students. We reached thousands of players from 136 countries and every continent, including Antarctica.

Following the success of the 2019, we are now offering a new and expanded IUPAC Periodic Table Challenge and we invite everyone to join! While the individual players are recognized with IUPAC Certificate, the most active Schools/Institutions will be chosen to receive a limited edition Periodic Table autographed by a Nobel Laureate in Chemistry!

How to play

The IUPAC Periodic Table Challenge will present you with 10 randomly chosen multiple-choice questions about the elements. To play, you will be asked to choose the difficulty level and an element as avatar. You will be asked to provide your name and email so we can keep track of your achievements. Your score will go towards this element in the leaderboard and the avatars will show up on the world map based on the geolocation of your internet provider.

Schools, Institutions, or Organizations may wish to participate in the Periodic Table challenge. The most active schools/institutions will be chosen to receive an IUPAC Periodic Table of the Elements poster signed by a chemistry Nobel Laureate! This was kindly made possible by 13 chemistry Nobel laureates. Please send us an email to let us know so we don’t miss you.

This Challenge and its components are offered for informational purposes only. The information (name and city) you provide will appear on the Certificate if you score 60 % or above. You can download your certificate at a later time by entering your email under ‘Check your Score’.

Please share your experiences on social media using #PeriodicTableChallenge. You can reach us at PTChallenge@iupac.org

If you enjoyed the Challenge, please support us by visiting the IUPAC SHOP where we have some merchandise featuring the PT Challenge.
