Perse teams take the top spots in Uppingham chemistry quiz
5 Mar 2015
This week, The Perse sent two teams of students to Uppingham School to participate in the 2015 Year 11 Inter-school Chemistry Quiz.
Twelve teams representing seven schools from across the region competed in a series of quiz rounds to test their chemical prowess. Students where challenged on topics across a broad range of chemistry, from the Periodic Table to household chemistry, famous chemists/scientists to chemistry in nature and most importantly the Chemistry “Dingbat” challenge.
For a second year in a row, the Perse teams did us proud. Perse Team A came in second place with an impressive 164 points, only narrowly missing out on victory thanks to Perse Team B who scored a fantastic 174 points, which allowed them to walk away with the trophy and some edible treats.
A fantastic evening was had by all, with many thanks to Uppingham for hosting another splendid activity to help students engage in science.
