National Senior Science Quiz Final

Congratulations and well done to all involved in the National Final of the ISTA Senior Science Quiz held at Trinity Biological Science Institute and sponsored by BioPharmChemical Ireland. All 39 teams at the Final were winners from the Regional Finals held during Science Week. Thanks to Mark Langtry who was an entertaining quizmaster.

The winners were:

  1. Loreto Secondary School, Letterkenny, Co. Donegal. Teacher: Ms. O’Reilly.
  2. Sandford Park School, Ranelagh, Dublin. Teacher: Dr. Gilroy.
  3. CBS High School, Clonmel, Co. Tipperary. Teacher: Ms. Rowe.

A huge thanks to the national coordinator, Humphrey Jones, on his inaugural role. The quiz was initiated back in 1990 by Dr. Shea Mullally (R.I.P.) of the Dublin Branch. The success of the quiz is down to all the volunteers of the ISTA organisation.

Thanks also to the Royal Society of Chemistry who supplied spot prizes for the students and Gill publishers who supplied spot prizes for the teachers at the Final.

This year's chosen charity was Dogs Trust.
