  4. Academic Team

    A fairly concise definition of Academic Team competition was offered to me by Ken Jennings, the winningest Jeopardy player of all time: “It’s like team Jeopardy”. Seriously, he told me that at a Nationals Tournament in Chicago once.

    Until then, as we say in the science-sport-art of Academic Team competition: perceptum totus! (that’s Latin for “study everything”).
