Hello Dr. Neuss,
Could our IB students participate in the periodic table quiz? Could they upload their questions too? Mona

Hi Mona, They can certainly make up and upload their questions and send them to IUPAC now using the online form. You will need to look out for details as to how they can participate in the quiz when it goes live on 1st January 2019.
