Windhoek International School wins NUST Brain Match!
WIS did it again! Winning the Namibia University of Science and Technology’s (NUST) Brain Match competition for the second time in a row.
The NUST Brain Match is an annual quiz contest on Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry, Renewable Energy and General Knowledge organised by the Faculty of Engineering. Our school was one of 16 participating schools in this year’s competition. We are proud of the winning team: Viktoria Ellmies, Tanatswa Murwira, Janine Tibazarwa, and Yiming Xu.
This year, the contest was structured and conducted in three rounds - first round, semi-final and final round. Making it through the first two rounds into the final was not difficult for us. However, the final round was a close encounter.
The three other schools in the final round with us were, St. Pauls College, Hage G. Geingob High School and Windhoek High School. We tied with St. Pauls and Hage G. Geingob, and Windhoek High School was granted the 4th position. As no clear winner emerged at this point, a tie-breaker round was organised.
This final round was full of energy where every single point mattered. Our hearts were racing but with knowledge and composure, we did it. It is fantastic to be part of a great team, with amazing support.
The team would like to thank Mr. Jacob Oluwasanmi our Physics and Math teacher, their fellow Grade 11 classmates, and the Grade 10 Physics students, who showed their continuous support throughout the competition.
We look forward to WIS being awarded the winners' title again next year and maintain the success of these two years.
