Science Quizzes

It's time to break out your lab coat, periodic table and a set of beakers and dive into the science games at Sporcle. You can try your hand at naming all of the elements in a periodic table game, or put yourself to the test with timed math games. No matter which science trivia game you choose, you won't have to cut open a frog or create a scale model of an atom (unless you want to). If you're looking for a new way to study for a science quiz, try our planets game to remember all eight of them, or see how many digits of pi you can remember. Either way you'll be prepared for any unplanned trips into outer space at a moment's notice.

    I don't even care that it's not real; I want a Cerberian Tri-Headed Poodle.

    Got all but one, trying everything I could think of except for the right whale. Ha! It's a joke, see? I'll see myself out.

    The day that owning a Plott comes in handy! Well, that and every day she looks at me adoringly.

    I swear I did not make this up: When Wikipedia is missing an illustration of a whale, they flag it "cetacean needed".

    "Wirehaired" is still incorrectly spelled as "whirehaired" months after Sibuli reported it. In my case it DID make me miss the answer as I took it to be a purposeful misspelling to catch out the unwary.

    You still haven't fixed the "Whirehaired"/"Griffin" misspellings! C'mon, this is Sporcle, and spelling counts!
  7. Short Astronomy Quiz

    Some of these questions are poorly phrased - you're asking for sizes without specifying units or even dimensions. E.g., "What is the estimated size of the observable universe": you mean diameter? volume? what? If diameter, what do you want that in? Light-years? Kilometers? Miles? Furlongs? You have to say.

    Miniature Poodle isn't an official AKC breed, either. The Poodle comes in three varieties, based on size (standard, miniature, and toy) but they're all one breed. Same way the Cocker Spaniel shows in three varieties (black, parti-color, and ASCOB) but is one breed.
