House Championships - Science Quiz

The buzzers were back in action during the first house competition of 2020 as students and staff of Aqua, Caeli and Terra went head to head in the House Science Quiz. Teams consisted of one member of staff and 4 students who took on a series of questions across 8 topics, challenging their science knowledge. Each of the 8 topics consisted of 6 questions with a variety of multiple choice, buzz in or complete the equations. 

Despite Aqua starting the new year with a healthy advantage at the top of the leaderboard, it was Terra and Caeli who got 2020 off to a flying start, closing the gap on Aqua. Terras team, led by Mr Young proved too strong, displaying excellent team work, communication and scientific knowledge they secured a comfortable 10 point victory over Caeli in 2nd place and Aqua in 3rd. 

Victory for Terra meant they leapfrogged Caeli in 2nd place and closed the gap on Aqua at the top to under 100 points. Well done to students and staff who took part in the event.
