The National Finals of the annual ISTA Senior Science Quiz took place in the Tercentenary Hall in Trinity Biomedical Sciences Institute on Saturday 26th November. It was full to capacity with 45 teams of Leaving Certificate science students representing 20 counties from all around Ireland and their teachers. Almost 1000 students took part in the Regional Finals held during Science Week and the top teams were invited to the BioPharmaChemical Ireland sponsored National Final.

We greatly appreciate the wonderful generosity of ISTA in choosing The Caroline Foundation as their charity of choice again this year. Like ISTA it is a voluntary organisation and all donations go directly to fund researchers.
