Well done to the SoPA team who achieved 2nd place in their semi-final, then 3rd place in the grand final of the IBM Universities Business Challenge on 12 March!
There was fierce competition during the third annual mid-semester pub quiz held for students studying the year 2 Modern Physics course. The 12 teams battled it out with questions on physics, astronomy, general knowledge and movies, as well as a fun picture round.
Well done to all the competing teams, and congratulations to the winning team ‘Sanduleak 69’, who were presented with chocolates, wine and a winner’s certificate.
So, let’s see how you get on:
Physics: Particles moving in a medium faster than the local speed of light emit what?
Astronomy: What did Didier Queloz and Michel Mayer discover in 1995 that led to their Nobel Prize this week?
Movies: Draw the rebel alliance logo.
General knowledge: What is the national animal of Scotland?
Did someone say haggis…..?
