Mar-Sep 2022

Congratulations! You've demonstrated advanced knowledge on climate solutions. Now it's time to put this to good use and start solving some real problems.

In the Semi-Final, you choose one of three problem statements to respond to. To help you prepare, you are told the topics 10 days before the event, but the exact problem statement is only revealed at the start of the actual qualifier event.

Then you have 3 hours to research and write essay responses to questions related to the problem statement. ClimateScience will score each team's solution.

FAQ 2021

arrow_right

誰可以參加?

我們舉辦兩個年齡組:14-17歲和18-25歲。如果你在註冊時屬於其中之一,不論國籍或其他因素,你都有資格。

參賽隊的兩個成員在申請時必須在同一年齡段內。我們將要求所有進入半決賽的參賽人提供年齡證明。

兩個年齡段都參加相同的預選賽並回答相同類型的問題。但是,我們僅對該年齡段內的參與者進行比較,這意味著我們分別為兩個年齡段打分,並將它們標準化,然後根據各個年齡段的最高分數來選擇半決賽者、決賽入圍者和最終獲勝者。這樣可以確保不分年齡大小的公平比較。

我可以如何準備?

預選賽:只有5%的參賽者可以晉級半決賽,因此準備工作可以發揮很大的作用。你可以參加我們的課程或在應用程式完成我們的測驗 。除此之外,請閱讀你感興趣的內容,並在活動期間把內容聯繫在一起!

如何計分?

成為評審 這裡。

複雜性、相關性、推論、結構和有效性,以及你提供可靠來源的能力。活動開始前,所有團隊都會獲得評核標準。評審的最終得分將是隊伍的原始得分。我們將根據一個月內在一個年齡段內的所有得分來計算每個團隊的z得分。 Z分數是原始分數與平均值的距離。更重要的是,它使我們能夠標準化不同評委的得分,從而為所有團隊提供公平的分數。

一旦我們獲得一個月內每個參賽團隊的所有z得分,我們便從各個年齡段中抽取前10%的z得分。另外兩名法官會對前10%的回應再次進行評分。我們會重新計算z分數,然後決定兩個年齡段中這些z分數的前50%,而前50%的隊伍是將受邀參加氣候科學奧林匹克半決賽的隊伍!
