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.

  2. Evolution of Species

    @Journey2688 Of course we should let people believe what they want. But without judgement? If people are seriously believing that Earth is 6000 years old and that people and dinosaurs lived together, yeah I think we should judge these people wrong. Because they ARE very wrong according to modern science. I think there actually are reasons to 'belittle religions' if they are claiming nonsense as written above, because it is clearly influencing the educational system in a non-scientific way, which only harms the children. If religions are simply denying facts about the natural world, they should be kept far away from science classes. Sorry about this long off topic comment, but I just felt the urge to answer... On topic: Very fine quiz, but missed some more (and more detailed) categories. From the earlier comments it seems that there used to be...

    @HarveyRabbit, Science isn't a source, it's generally a method to determine answers. This quiz has a source in the Extras section at the bottom of this page but here it is anyway

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/nature/history_of_the_earth

    That in turn it can be backed up by wikipedia (wait for it) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geologic_time_scale, which in turn is backed up by the sources. When you see a statement in wiki with a little number next to it. Click and it will take you to the source which is independently created most of the time. Often that's the most interesting part of Wikipedia

    Alternatively, use Google and search for scientific peer reviewed papers on the progression of life on earth. Enjoy entering that rabbit hole of information Mr Rabbit

    When I saws "Laws of Motion", I started looking for "First", "Second" and "Third".
  5. Evolution of Species

    This is the wrong venue for an argument about evolution. No one is ever going to be persuaded to change deeply-held beliefs about reality by a Sporcle comment. Just let it be.
  6. Evolution of Species
    21
    Belittling religion is fine, but maybe find a better place to do that than the comments of a Sporcle quiz where no one had been talking about religion.
