Bright sparks nail science questions
YOUNG minds from Tralee to Tarbert proved their expertise in the sciences as fifth and sixth class students of schools battled it out in the Primary Science School quiz last week at the south campus of the Tralee IT.
The students demonstrated their in-depth knowledge of science over the course of very challenging rounds.
Throughout the event the students never ceased to amaze their teachers with their knowledge. The challenge was to answer a number of science-based questions that ranged in all fields of the subject.
The exciting scientific quiz ended in a tie-breaker for second and third place. The end result came down to a sudden-death question in a nail-biting finale.
While two teams from Scoil Eoin, Balloonagh Tralee succeeded on coming both second and third it was Tarbert National school pupils who prevailed.
The team came first place and it was well deserved as they displayed excellent understanding of the questions throughout the quiz. The room was full of great excitement and tension throughout the day but especially when the two teams from Scoil Eoin battled it out for second place. The event that was sponsored by Kerry Group and organised by the Kerry Science Teachers Association proved to be both an exciting and a nerve-racking day for the pupils.
And the winners are! Tarbert NS pupils Sarah Cournane, Thomas Kiely, Jack Hutchinson and Ciara Henderson holding their chemistry lab prizes as teacher Patrick O’Hanlon accepts the trophy from Tríona Horan (MC).
