The Department of Chemical Engineering was the proud host of the Western Cape provincial round of Minquiz 2014, South Africa’s premier annual national science competition for Grade 12 learners.

The competition took place on Thursday, 15 May 2014 at Wynberg Boys High School. Cash prizes were awarded to the leading schools, while the top individual learners have been selected to represent the Western Cape at the national finals to be held 15-16 July 2014.

SACS scooped the Oral Quiz top prize in the Platinum category, while the top individual learner of the written quiz hailed from Bishops. The Cape Academy for Maths, Science and Technology gained both the top individual learners and the Oral Quiz top prize in the Gold Category. Good luck to our Western Cape finalists going through to the National competition.
