Quizzitch, the quiz event of CelesteCon, challenges its participants with intriguing questions related to aerospace, aviation and other allied STEM fields. These challenging and tantalizing questions are designed and patterned to evaluate your knowledge about these fields and logical reasoning as well as comprehension skills. Being a team event, this will also test the synergy between the participants. The event would be divided into a preliminary and final round and categorized into junior (6th to 8th) and senior (9th to 12th) categories.
All the questions will be presented in a Google Slides presentation, live in the Zoom meeting.
Each student would get 10 and 20 seconds to answer an MCQ and subjective question respectively, and then the presenter will move to the next slide (the question will be closed).
Each participant will type their answers in the chat box privately to the panelists.
The format for answers is → (<option>) [Eg: (a) ] for the MCQ based questions and (<answer>) [Eg: (Neil Armstrong) ] for the subjective type questions.
Any answer received after the time frame (10/20 seconds) would not be considered.
It is mandatory for each participant to switch on their camera during the meeting.
Anyone suspected or found to be cheating would be immediately disqualified.
Incase of an issue during the meet, contact the panelists (privately) through the chat.

Q. What is the infinite bounce system?
Ans- The infinite bounce system includes the passing (bouncing) of a particular question from the team it is directed towards, to other teams until a correct answer. If we run out of teams for passing the question before it's correctly answered, that particular question is skipped. Taking a scenario where a particular question is directed towards team “A”. If team A is not able to answer this, the question is passed on to team B, C, D and so on. Pounce and bounce systems will only be used in the final rounds.
Q. What is the pounce system?
Ans- Participants of all teams will be allowed to answer the questions which are particularly allocated for the pounce system, if they raise their hand first. After raising their hand on video the participants will then have to type the answer in the chatbox to the panelists within the pounce window. If correct, they will receive 15 points however if wrong 5 points will be deducted from their score. Participants may also refrain from answering the pounce questions if they are not sure of the answers. Pounce and bounce systems will only be used in the final rounds.
