It’s time for the annual New Zealand Institute of Chemistry (Wellington Branch) Chemistry Quiz!  Hosted in association with Victoria University of Wellington, the quiz is open to teams from all secondary schools in the greater Wellington area. Teams are made up of four students from years 12 or 13. This year, we can accommodate up to two teams per school. The quiz will be held on Wednesday, 14 June at Victoria University in the recreation centre gym.
Sign in for the quiz will open at 6:30 pm for a 7:00 pm start and the quiz is expected to finish by 9:00 pm. Entertainment will be provided for teachers and parents. This gives them a chance to get together over supper while the students scratch their heads at the diabolical chemistry questions thrown at them by the evening’s hosts! The quiz will challenge students' chemistry curriculum knowledge, their general chemistry knowledge and their general knowledge, and there are some great prizes to be won for both the students and their schools.
Please visit to register your teams. We ask that you complete registration by 22 May, and then advise us of team names and the names of your team members by 3 June via email. If you have any problems with the online registration, or if you have any other questions, please contact us at
