National Science Quiz 2022

Join us for a fantastic night of science and fun with the National Science Quiz!

Hosted by Charlie Pickering from ABC TV’s The Weekly, and joined by some of Australia’s top scientists (including EQUS Chief Investigator Jacq Romero) along with our special-guest team captains, each team will battle it out for the honour of being this year’s National Science Quiz champions.

While our teams discuss and ponder their quiz answers, our live audience will also be playing along for the chance to win a $500 cash prize.

The event will be live-streamed via the National Science Quiz YouTube channel, so you can play along at home to win a $250 cash prize.  Why not get a team together and make a night of it!

You can also submit a video science quiz question to put to our panellits for a chance to win $200.

They’ll be lots of science, laughs and fun, and maybe even some slime!

Watch, join in, or do both – whatever you choose, the National Science Quiz will remind you how wonderful science really is.
