Competition: Enter our science quiz and see stars in Las Palmas
Monday 08 November 1993
Answer 20 questions on the history of science in Europe and you could be winging your way to the international astronomical observatory at Las Palmas in the Canary Islands, investigating the Medical Research Council's tropical disease laboratories in The Gambia, visiting 'the Big Machine' at the European Laboratory for Particle Physics (Cern) in Geneva, or one of the many other research laboratories and centres of scientific culture in Europe.
You do not have to be an Einstein to enter. The questions will be about the scientists who helped build the scientific heritage of Europe. Some will be straightforward, but others will need detective skills and lateral thinking.
The competition will appear on the Independent's Science page on Monday 22 November. The questions will be repeated on Thursday 25 November on the Education pages, and again on the Science page on Monday 29 November. Anyone aged 14 to 18 on 30 November 1993 can enter the competition. The closing date will be 20 December 1993, and all visits will take place during the first half of 1994. For further details, write to Sally Goodman, Euro Science Quiz, British Association for the Advancement of Science, Fortress House, 23 Savile Row, London W1X 1AB.
