As part of National Science week 2013, Westwood College Science department hosted its annual ‘Eureka!’ science quiz at lunchtime on Wednesday 27th March. Open to students and staff of all ages, the prestigious prize of a Golden Test tube was hotly contested by over 40 teams of four students. Having had to postpone the quiz from the previous week due to snow closure, nearly 200 students packed into Old Hall to pick their wits against each other. Facing questions on Biology, Chemistry and Physics, they also had to contend with Mr Thackstone’s music round (with a scientific twist!) and a famous faces round!

Eventual winners of the Golden Test Tubes plus plenty of Easter eggs were-

Year 9-11        Brad Hannan, Joe Hulme, Alex Montgomery and Matt Whitehouse

Year 12-13      Hannah Blisset, Maddie Clarke, Rob Harrison and Emily Woodcock

Teaching Staff           Miss Wightman, Miss Ratcliffe, Miss Nash and Mr Lawton

(Misses Wightman, Ratcliffe and Nash having now won for the past 3 years!!)

 Well done to everyone’s competitive spirit – a great time was had by all! Extra thanks to the brilliant team of markers, Jamie Oliver for sound, Malcolm and Louise for tables and chairs and all the science staff who helped out! Looking forward to next year already!!
