Year 10 student Alex Farrell Webb gives his account of this years Science Olympics competition
FUN AT LIVERPOOL UNIVERSITY “SCIENCE OLYMPICS”.
IT’S NOT THE WINNING BUT TAKING PART!
I had a wonderful time at the Science Olympics, even in my own time on Saturday 30th January. For those of you who don’t know the science Olympics is an off the radar special contest for only those in ownership of the very best scientific minds. Every year we mental athletes meet up and engage in combat for the prize of scientific glory. We took part in many tasks of endurance and mental prowess. The tasks included transporting important money sums like 1p’s and 2p‘s, keeping a dying ship afloat through clever use of physics, and even constructing a device that can defy gravity and cross the sky with ease. There was another task, to construct a time measuring device.
My name is Alex Farrell Webb, and with my team: Mark Mobley and Kaan Cengiz all (10G2), I think we stand a good chance next year and will take the fight back to Liverpool University and prove ourselves as the dominant scientific males.
