Get Ready for the 2015 Philippine Nuclear Science Quiz!
Aiming to boost awareness on nuclear science and technology among students while also fostering a healthy competition, the Department of Science and Technology – Philippine Nuclear Research Institute (DOST-PNRI) will host the 2015 Philippine Nuclear Science Quiz (PNSQ).
The competition will cover various topics on nuclear S&T such as radiation and radioactivity, atomic and nuclear structure, nuclear and radiation technology, nuclear power, radiation protection, nuclear safety and regulations and nuclear-related current events. Each school will send a team composed of two high school students and a coach.
This year, the PNSQ expands its reach as the elimination round will be held from September to November during the various DOST Regional S&T Fairs for North Luzon, South Luzon A, South Luzon B, Visayas and Mindanao.
The top four schools in the elimination round from each regional cluster will compete at the National Level on December 8 during the 3rd Philippine Nuclear Congress to be held in Manila. This level begins with the semi-final round in the form of a quiz show, where the five highest scorers at the end of the quiz will qualify for the final round.
In the final round, the teams will race towards the finish line by answering the quizmaster’s questions. Cash prizes will be awarded to the top five national qualifiers – PhP 50,000 for the first place, PhP 35,000 for the second, PhP 25,000 for the third, and PhP 15,000 each for the last two qualifiers.
