Eight scientists travelled up to the IMAX Theatre in the Science Museum in London on Wednesday to take part in the National Science Quiz. It was an incredible venue with a massive screen. Thirty seven teams took part in the heat. Our boys and girls did incredibly well. After ten questions, Team R was in second place and Team C not far behind in eleventh place but the scores were very close – only 45 points separated the two Gayhurst Teams at this stage. After twenty questions, Team R was in second place and Team C only 15 points behind. It was still incredibly close after 30 questions with Team R in 5th place and Team C only 40 points behind. At the end of the quiz, after 40 questions, Team R came 9th with a score of 1845 and Team C came 16th with a score of 1715. The winning team scored 2125 so it was very close.
Well done to all the children who took part – Team R: James R, Chenna, Monty and Noah and Team C: James C, Alice, Dhruv and Oliver. Thank you to all the parents who came to support the teams and a special thank you to the parent helpers who helped to get us all through London safely.
