BITM Annual Science Quiz

BITM Annual Science Quiz

 

Birla Industrial and Technological Museum (BITM) organized 'Annual Science Quiz' for students of junior school, middle school and high school. This year, we, Aryabrata Chanda (Class- VI), Brahma Kumar (Class- VII) and I, Rahul Konar (Class- VII) represented our school, Delhi Public School North Kolkata, in the middle school category. On the 31st of October, 2017, we went there to participate in the first round of the quiz. Before the start of the game, the quizmaster told us about the rules of the quiz. There were six rounds based on Physics, Chemistry, Biology, scientists, scientific instruments and astronomy. Ten marks were awarded for answering direct questions and five marks for answering bonus questions. In the first round, we were up against La Martiniere for Boys. Though we were a bit nervous at first, we held on to our nerves and beat them by a good margin of forty points, thus qualified for the second round. The second round was held on 5th December, 2017. Here we competed against Bharatiya Vidya Bhawan and Delhi Public School, Newtown. Here again, through a marvellous teamwork, we beat Bharatiya Vidya Bhawan by twenty points. Both DPS Newtown and we were on same points. So we both qualified for the third round. The third round was held on 6th January, 2018. Our team confronted the team from Salt Lake School. Both the teams were well prepared and scored an equal number of points after the first six rounds. Even after three rounds of tie breaker, our points were equal. Unfortunately in the fourth tie breaker round, we lost by five points to Salt Lake School. We returned with a heavy heart, but our teachers, our parents and our friends consoled and encouraged us. We hope to win laurels for our school next year.
