Antibiotic Research UK are thrilled to announce a brand-new fundraising event this November for students: The Great University Science Quiz! The quiz is the charity’s first step in formal engagement with undergraduates in UK universities and teaching institutes to establishing undergraduate UK AMR Societies. By tomorrow’s professionals learning more about antibiotic resistance and how it threatens modern medicine, we hope what is learnt will be carried forward into the students’ future careers.
The quiz is designed to engage the next generation of doctors, nurses, pharmacists, scientists, healthcare students and more with the global health crisis that is antibiotic resistance and to raise money to fund research and patient support.
The virtual quiz is taking place on Wednesday 18th November 2020 at 7pm on Zoom during World AMR Awareness Week. You can join in the fun from the comfort of your sofa whatever the restrictions. Pit your wits against students from other universities to see who will be crowned winner!
Teams can have up to 6 people in them, but they should all be undergraduates. Universities/societies can enter as many teams as you would like. Tickets are £5 per head and each team member needs their own ticket. There are prizes for the winning teams, so think carefully about who you want on your team.
There will be 5 science rounds, with 10 questions per round. Confirmed presenters so far are:
- Monica Grady presenting the space round
- Jim Al-Khalili presenting the chemistry round
