Published at 15:15, Tuesday, 26 February 2013
THE excitement is building for the next heats of an academic competition.
Tomorrow evening round one of Top of the Form continues at Chetwynde School in Barrow.
Heat three will see St Bernard’s Catholic High School take on fellow Barrow school Furness Academy.
Furness Academy is the defending champion of the contest which tested year 10 and year 11 students in the areas of science, technology, engineering and maths.
The event is run by graduates, industrial placements and trainees from BAE Systems Maritime – Submarines in Barrow.
Heat four puts Dowdales School, in Dalton, up against Walney School.
The students will face a practical challenge, as well as quick fire rounds.
Last week heats one and two, held at Dowdales, resulted in wins for Ulverston Victoria High School and Kirkbie Kendal School. UVHS scored 440 points to Cartmel Priory CE School’s 380 points and Kirkbie Kendal School won with 405 points to Chetwynde School’s 350 points.
UVHS and Kirkbie Kendal now meet each other in round two on March 20, which takes place during National Science and Engineering Week.
The teams are all aiming to win a place in the Top of the Form final, which will be held at the Coronation Hall, in Ulverston, on April 25.
