About This Quiz

Before we get into the details of how this quiz is going to challenge you, allow us to tell you what it's about. If you haven't already guessed by the title of the quiz, which is why you're here, we're going to be quizzing you on scientific symbols. In the world of science, the word 'symbol' can mean so many different things, so much so that we've refused to stick to quizzing you about just one.

A scientific symbol can be anything from a picture you see that tells you about an object or an area, such as whether something is corrosive or extremely hot, to the abbreviation of an element in the periodic table. Symbols can be methods of measuring things like energy (joules) and heat (degrees Celsius) or letters of the Greek alphabet that are often used in science (and math and engineering). 

If you think you know enough of the elements of the periodic table (out of the 118 that exist), methods of scientific measurement, members of the Greek alphabet and warning signs and symbols, come try this quiz. It is the ultimate scientific symbol quiz on the internet and you definitely do not want to miss out.
