A University Challenge style science based quiz activity, with buzzers! This activity challenges the biology, chemistry, physics, maths and even geography knowledge of year 9 students. This can be a great way to get a school involved in local competition, or even just competition in their own school. It is also a great opportunity to test KS3 knowledge in preparation for exams. During the heats, the University of Ready can bring along other subject specific or higher education information sessions. With a bank of over 5000 questions, you can be sure you will never hear the same question twice. 

Heats will consist of rounds of quiz questions but we can also bring along other subject specific or higher education information sessions. The final will feature a similar set of round as well as a Science show, lunch and campus tour.  

Heat will take place in schools on dates to be agreed with each school.  Heats will take about 2 hours.

The Final will be a full day, on 15 March 2019 at Whiteknights Campus, University of Reading, RG1 5EX.
