The Knovel University Challenge kicks off its spring 2007 season on February 5th and will run through April 5th. The University Challenge provides students the opportunity to master their research and analysis skills while competing for 9 prizes. This season's winners will receive a $1500 scholarship or 1 of 8 iPod Shuffles. Now in its third season, this contest is open to all students of the hard sciences, mathematics and technology-related courses of study at universities with access to Knovel Library or Knovel K-Essentials.
