West of Scotland Physics Education Group (WOSPEG) Quiz 2014

A team of 3 S5 pupils from Kirkintilloch High School (Emily Brown, Terry Cowie and Calum Turnbull) recently competed in the WOSPEG Quiz, held at University West of Scotland in Paisley. The quiz, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, attracts schools from all over Scotland. Teams had to demonstrate their knowledge of physics, science and general knowledge-related questions in 7 quick-fire rounds. The Kirkintilloch team had a difficult draw and were competing against the 2013 champions Royal High, Edinburgh, along with two teams tipped for success this year: Oban High and St. Andrews Carntyne. In a tight and tense competition Oban ran out comfortable winners and it required a sudden death round for St Andrews to claim 2nd place. Although unsuccessful, the three Kirkintilloch pupils enjoyed the experience and left each with a prized WOSPEG mug.
