Some Chennai wit called our 2010 anniversary ‘the Woodstock of Quizzing’. On the same theme, another Chennai wag sent us the suggestion that we should call this year’s anniversary ‘a KQArian Exposition of Peace, Love and Quizzing’.

We blenched a little bit and complained a lot about the consequences of exposure to the Cooum. Having recovered, we now undertake to provide the quizzing; those who turn up will have to organise their own peace and love.

The events planned:

History of Ideas Quiz, followed by the Travel Quiz.
Both are for teams of two members.

June 25th: 0930hrs onwards

Jack Kilby Science and Technology Quiz- Winners

The final rounds of Texas Instruments science and technology quiz was held at St John’s auditorium, Bangalore on Sunday(22nd November 2009). 

This year, Sri Kumaran Public School’s (Bangalore) Atihith K and Subham Nandy, both Class 9 students, won at the regional and national finals. Beating last year’s finalists S Varun Raja Gopal and V Harish Krishna from Padma Seshadri Bala Bhavan Senior Secondary School, Chennai, the Kumaran team went on to win Sony Vaio notebooks.

The regional quiz round started on October 30 in Kolkatta, followed by Delhi, Chennai and Pune. In the regional round in Bangalore held on Sunday, 55 schools, 261 teams and 522 children participated. Also, at the regional round, Anjana Krishnamurthy won the `lonely discoverer of hidden talent’ award.

At the regional finals, the Kumaran team from Bangalore won the first prize, Padma Seshadri Bala Bhavan Senior Secondry School, Chennai, was first runner-up and Delhi Public School, Ghaziabad, came third. Other teams were from Abhinaya Vidyalaya English Medium High School, Pune and Birla High School, Kolkata.

Winner Shubham expressed joy in winning and anxiety in facing a school test to be held on Monday. “I had dual pressure. One from my teammate Atihith to prepare for the quiz, and second from my parents to prepare for tomorrow’s test.”

Atihith said his school team won the third prize last year. “This year, our head madam wanted us to come first. We are happy for achieving it,” said Atihith.

According to the winning team, it was daily learning habits like reading newspapers and science magazines, which helped them to prepare for the quiz.

B Bobby Mitra, president and MD, Texas Instrument, India, said: “This is the seventh year of the national-level quiz. We plan to expand it to more cities.”

The Quiz is conducted by: Ochintya Sharma of KQA
