UCC Science Quiz

Mrs Doyles Class 2016-2017

By Tomás Moynihan 6 th class

Cork Science Week took place from 13th - 20th November. There were several events organised for primary schools in Cork.  As part of this festival one such event was the Lifetime Lab 2016 Primary Science Quiz which took place on Wednesday 23rd November at Devere Hall, UCC at 6.30pm.

There were two teams from Sixth class representing our school, including Nicola Kiernan , Donnacha Coughlan and Sean McCullagh and the other team included Elma McCarthy,  Darren  Moynihan  and Tomas Moynihan.

The quiz consisted of eight rounds with eight questions each.  The answer sheets were collected at the end of each round. There were approximately 50 teams competing from across the county of Cork. The prizes were sponsored by the Royal Society of Chemistry and the deputy Lord Mayor of Cork presented the winning team with the quiz trophy.

While we did not win a prize on the night it was a very enjoyable experience.

The Science Quiz

Canovee National School recently took part in a science quiz in Cork. It was being hosted by the Lifetime Lab in DeVere Hall, UCC. The quiz was on Wednesday the 23RD of November. There were two teams ; Nicola Kiernan, Donnacha Coughlan and Séan McCullagh were one team and the other team was Elma McCarthy, Darren Moynihan and Tomás Moynihan. When we signed in we were given 3 raffle tickets and our question sheets. Then we wrote our number on a whiteboard and had our picture taken. After this we found our table and sat down. There were 8 rounds with 8 questions in each and a break halfway through. At the break they brought around fruit drinks and squares bars. The questions ranged from easy to extremely hard. Throughout the quiz they had spot prizes of books or goody bags. Although we didn’t win anything we had lots of fun and I enjoyed it immensely.
