Welcome to Unpopular Science’s first quiz. Each week we will put up a new quiz on a different area of science. After 5 weeks, whoever has the highest cumulative score will win a copy of Tiger Wars by Steve Backshall. * You can still take part in the competition. Make sure to do every week’s quiz though, for the best best chance of winning. Quiz 2 can be taken here.
