Presented as challenges, the Online Science-athon asks students to investigate questions that are engaging and fun, easy to incorporate into teaching, and instructive. Two of the challenges have a hands-on and a virtual version. Yet, all of them are delivered from the Science-athon web site, result in class data that is submitted to a central database, and involve displays of data in the database.
