Prep School Science Quiz

Once again the Science Quiz regional heat came to Birkdale Prep School. Last half term the boys went through a selection process quiz and 3 teams, of two P3 and P4 boys were put together. The dedicated boys did some practice quizzes before Tuesday 1st Nov, the day of the heat. There were 5 teams in total and 40 questions had to be answered.

Birkdale's second team took the lead after the 5th round and held their position throughout the quiz. Questions about the weather, periodic table, inventors, space and animals stretched boys, parents and staff.  By round 30 we were in 1st, 2nd and 4th place and with 10 questions left, worth 80 and 100 points, there was everything to play for. At the end of round 37 we were 1st, 2nd and 3rd with team 2 still in the lead.  The final question was the decider and Birkdale's team one clinched it.  A very exciting finale indeed.

Well done to Jacob Jordan, Thomas Hernandez, Felix Hawker and Ffinlo Dyde, who are now in the semi-finals of this national competition.
