Learning, STEMQuest, Survitec Methodist College Named STEMQuest Winners

As part of the NI Science Festival, whizz kids from around Northern Ireland competed today in our STEMQuest Challenge, in partnership with CCEA, in a bid to become Northern Ireland’s top team. 

Methodist College proved to be ‘Best in Class’ in the University Challenge style competition, with Sullivan Upper being named runners-up, and were presented their award by local TV personality, Joe Lindsay.

STEMQuest saw over 32 teams of Key Stage 3 post primary students (years 8-10) from across the region compete and test their knowledge against one another.

Titanic Belfast’s Director of Operations, Siobhan Lynch commented, "A huge congratulations to Methodist College who have just fended off over 30 other teams to become our STEMQuest Champions. It was definetly a nail-biting competition. We were delighted to see so many schools, teachers and pupils get involved and the standard of all the teams was excellent! As the future need for Northern Irish STEM graduates grows, we were delighted to see young people engage with science in a fun and interactive way!"
