This looks like a great opportunity: 2 weeks at Imperial College London, full of talks by highly esteemed scientists & demonstrators, visits, debates, and more – with the possibility of going to CERN in Geneva!
Special delivery of liquid nitrogen for Science week…!
After a storming start from Fox, Downes recovered and the Prep school final turned out to be a very closely fought battle. Despite some stunning guesswork from Fox (even before multiple choice questions were fully read out!), Downes were finally crowned champions.
In the Senior competition, there were some thoroughly impressive answers. Particular mention must go to Ben Wang who dominated the Maths questions. Nightingale proved to be faster on the buzzers, leading them to a decisive victory.
Thank you to all staff and students who took part and made this a very educational and entertaining event.
