Mountain seeks science teams

Posted on | March 1, 2010 | 2 Comments

Via David Maybury:

Looks like RTE are recruiting teams of three kids aged 10 to 12 years old to compete in a new science show, The Mountain, which involves team work, strategy, science and action.

Do you have the brains, brawn, stamina and strength to reach the summit and conquer The Mountain?

Are you into science adventure?

Can you prove which fruit conducts electricity?

Can you predict the outcome of explosive stunts?

Given the materials, Can you build a catapult or slingshot which will accurately fling eggs at a target?

Closing date for applications is this Friday, 5th of March so get your skates on and head over to the RTE website for further details and forms if you’re interested. Sounds like it should be entertaining and fun.

    Ooh, looks very interesting. Will check it out not for my 11 year old son and his pals. Thanks.

    Unfortunately I only heard about this late in the day so there’s not much time to get organised and get entries in.

    But I hope many do and it’ll hopefully make great viewing for the preteens.
