Primetime to launch 22nd edition of National Science & Maths quiz

Primetime, producers of the National Science & Maths Quiz, is set to launch the 2017 edition of the National Science & Maths Quiz on May 31 at the British Council Hall in 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.

The launch will inform stakeholders in Ghana’s educational sector and the general public about the competition’s  journey so far.

It will also emphasise the contribution of the National Science & Maths Quiz in producing scientists for the country as well as unveil some of the additions being made to the competition this year.

Speakers at the launch would include Minister of Education, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, Minister of Environment, Science, Technology and Innovation, Prof. Kwabena Frimpong-Boateng and President of the Conference of Heads of Assisted Secondary Schools (CHASS), Cecilia Kwakye Coffie.

In addition to the quiz, Primetime will hold Mentorship Sessions featuring various individuals excelling in the science and technology industry, as a means of exposing the participants to the career opportunities open to them as Science students.

There will also be the maiden edition of a Science & Technology Fair, dubbed NSMQ Sci-Tech Fair, scheduled for June 27-28, at University of Ghana.

The CHASS sponsored event will also have excursions planned alongside the competition.

The National Science & Maths Quiz has been a part of the calendar of senior high schools in Ghana since 1993.

This year’s edition comes off on June 2 at the University of Ghana Business School Auditorium right through to June 29 when the Grand Finale takes centre stage at the National Theatre.

The 2017 edition of the National Science & Maths Quiz is sponsored by the Ghana Education Service through the Conference of Heads of Assisted Secondary Schools and supported by GOIL, Prudential Life Insurance and the Accra College of Medicine.
