The quiz will take the form of ten 20-minute challenges, an outline of which will be sent out after your application has been confirmed. There will be a maximum of 25 schools and colleges competing on the day and prizes will be awarded to the top four teams.

Staff accompanying the students will have adequate provision for personal study or work, a tour of the college facilities and a CPD event, along with a plentiful supply of food and drink. We do ask students to bring a packed lunch or bring money to purchase their lunch from one of Myerscough’s catering outlets.

Organiser, Caroline Sharples, said: ‘’We are very excited to be back, this will be our 21st quiz, and we are really excited to have a new venue this year.

‘’Myerscough College are hosting the quiz which will take place in their gardens, grounds, and facilities. This has given our quiz masters an amazing scope for the challenges.

‘’We are so pleased to be back running the quiz and hope you will enter a team of your students to take part in the challenges. It also gives students a chance to meet with their peers from other schools and colleges and to meet our quiz masters who come from a variety of biological interests and fields ranging from microbiology to marine biology and beyond!’’
