We're now on the lookout for this year’s best science, technology, engineering and maths Key Stage 3 (1st – 3rd year) quiz teams of four to compete and test their knowledge against their peers from across the region, in a bid to become Northern Ireland’s top team!

Siobhan McCartney, Titanic Belfast’s Learning and Outreach Manager, commented, “As the future need for Northern Irish Science STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) graduates grows, we are delighted to host our third STEM Quest Challenge. Its brilliant to see so many schools, teachers and pupils get involved and compete at such a high standard. We encourage KS3 pupils, whether you are science mad, geek chic or a mathematical whiz kid, to get your teacher to sign up and get involved!”
