There are many different types of sciences that can be studied which is why in this Spanish science quiz we will introduce you to the study of a number of those different sciences. You may have already learned the English names of most of these sciences in your science classes but since you are in the process of learning how to speak in Spanish, it’s a pretty good idea to also learn the science names in Spanish. In short, this quiz will be focusing on the names of the areas of science and not on any specifics involved in any of the areas. That should make things pretty simple!
In addition to the names of the sciences, you will also be given a very brief description of what area the science studies. After you have looked over your vocabulary list and studied the new Spanish vocabulary words and what is studied, move on to the quiz section.
