100 thoughts on “High School Quiz Show – The Championship: Advanced Math & Science vs. Lexington (715)

  1. The only question that I know the answer is the 8 stages psychosocial development of erik erickson😢😢😢 ahahaha im poor

  2. The fact that they have to wait until the question is finished completely removes the skill and competition. It becomes randomness around which person gets chosen when all 8 buzz in at the same time on these easy questions. It becomes about who can predict when the computer allows them to buzz more than what they know and how quick they remember it

  3. I am feeling so smartyy right now coz I answer the correct answer in a question that they failed to answer correctly hahah, im so proud og myself lol

  4. How hard to the have to press the buttons. It looks like they have to squeeze them in order for a buzz

  5. krishna and colin really blow it so smart also all the others i knew only those math and science questions lol the others couldnt even read them and also about asgard thr etc lol

  6. Man, most of these trivia questions were easy. and I'm not even a nerd. When I was a high school student in Virginia, we had Battle of the Brains. Our questions were a lot harder.

  7. Can someone write what was the math operation (cause im a spanish-speaker and i couldnt understand it very well)

  8. In my personal opinion, There is no way that these two teams and I hadn’t seen the subject matter that would be featured in this episode prior to the taping of it. If that wasn’t the case, each one of these guys could be raining Jeopardy champion.

  9. no Plato but Platon.
    no Πλατω but Πλατων
    or Πλατωνας!(Platonas)

  10. I think I'm as good at math as these kids and I'm in 8th grade. The rest…well.. not so much

  11. good on massachusetts, should probably give the other team a chance to answer a missed question, buzzing in early and being wrong should be a double penalty. imho.

  12. Wow, I can usually hold my own in general knowledge questions and game shows such as jeopardy, millionaire etc if I pause and think for a few seconds… , but damn these kids are on point.

  13. बहुत अच्छे से किया कृष्ण जी ढेरों शुभकामनाएँ

  14. do they have to let the finish the question before to buzz? coz you could determine the answer of some of the questions with just the first five words of the questions..
