All is set for the National Science & Maths Quiz and Science Festival, which brings together 135 Senior High Schools each year to participate in the National Championship, in Accra. This will be the 23rd edition of the Quiz.
As a prelude to the Science Festival, an official launch will be held on Tuesday, June 5, 2018 at the British Council Hall at 5:00pm. According to Primetime, producers of the National Science & Maths Quiz, the purpose of the launch is to inform stakeholders in Ghana’s Educational sector and the general public about how far the Competition has come, emphasize its contribution in producing scientists for the country and unveil some of the additions being made to the Competition in this year’s edition.
Primetime, producers of the National Science & Maths Quiz, is set to launch the 2017 edition of the National Science & Maths Quiz on May 31, 2017 at the British Council Hall, Accra. This year’s competition will be the 22nd edition of the quiz which brings together 135 Senior High Schools each year to participate in the National championship.
Primetime is set to organise the maiden edition of the NSMQ Sci-Tech Fair on June 27 & 28 at the University of Ghana, Legon as part of the 2017 edition of the National Science & Maths Quiz.
The organisation, which is the brain behind the National Science & Maths Quiz, believes that this Fair will afford Senior High School students the opportunity to demonstrate that they are not only knowledgeable in answering questions on stage but can put into practice some of the concepts they study in school in solving problems.
A total of 135 Senior High Schools have qualified for the 2017 edition of the National Science & Maths Quiz scheduled for June this year. This year’s edition will be the 22nd since Primetime started the production in 1993.
Out of the 135 schools, 108 qualified through the Regional Competitions held across the country in January-February 2017. The other 27 are seeded schools that made it to at least, the quarter final stage of the 2016 edition of the competition.
Below is the list of the 135 schools which would compete for the coveted title in June:
Of the 134 senior high schools from all regions of Ghana who for close to three weeks have been competing, 27 have made it to the quarter finals.
By virtue of having reached the quarter finals, these 27 schools would gain automatic qualification to the 2017 edition of the competition, thus skipping the Regional competitions and Preliminary stage of next year’s edition.
The 2016 National Science & Maths Quiz will enter its quarter final stage on Thursday, June 23, 2016, with contests taking place till Saturday, June 25, 2016.
The 2016 edition of the National Science & Maths Quiz comes off from Monday, June 6 to Wednesday June 29, 2016 at the University of Ghana, Legon. This year’s edition would be the 21st in the history of the competition which started in 1993.
Competing this year would be 136 schools from the ten regions of Ghana. Out of these schools, 27 of them are seeded schools and would not compete at the preliminary stage, by virtue of having qualified to the quarter final stage in the 2015 edition of the competition. Therefore, 109 schools would compete at the preliminary stage.
