The Engineering Village Compendex Quiz is an annual quiz run to raise awareness about the Engineering Village database. Become familiar with the contents of the database & how it can help you with your research - and potentially win a prize. Last year, multiple ECU students won a prize.
This contest is not affiliated with ECU, but is open to ECU students who are current residents of Australia and New Zealand, and are at least 18 years old. Please check the terms and conditions of the contest before deciding to enter. The details are available on the contest website linked below.
The quiz will run from 9 August until 10 September 2021.
How to enter:
If you don't have a personal account with Engineering Village yet, this is the time to create one. You do not need to use your ECU email account to log in, and we will not be able to recover your password for you (so make sure to keep it safe).
Follow the instructions in the quiz, using Compendex (one of the databases within Engineering Village) to answer all four questions.
Fill in your personal details. These details are not held by ECU. Please check your eligibility and use your judgment when providing personal details to outside groups.
Finish the quiz.
This challenge will close on 10 September at 9:59PM Perth time (23:59 AEST). Winners will be chosen from entries with four correct answers, and will notified by email. Winners will be listed in October on the contest website. Check the contest site for eligibility, rules, and prizes.
To ensure that the contest is fair, you need to answer these questions by yourself.
However, if you need help learning how to search on/use a database, or to use the learning technologies involved, I can help.
