NTIC Abuja, Hosts Nigeria’s Second Edition of World Scholars Cup
ABUJA – Nigerian Tulip International Colleges Abuja hosted the second edition of World Scholars Cup in Nigeria on 3rd and 4th of November, 2018.
The two-day event which took place at Nigerian Tulip International Colleges and National Universities Commission’s Auditorium had in participation over 400 students from 17 schools within and outside of Abuja.
The schools that participated include; 11 of NTIC schools across Nigeria, Premier International School Wuse, Aduvie International School, Funtaj International School, ICICIE Al-Anoor, Doveland International School and I-Scholars International Academy.
World Scholars Cup is a global academic event that brings students from different nationalities and countries together to pursuit a common challenge which features four exciting events - Team Debate, Scholar's Challenge, Collaborative Writing and Scholar's Bowl.
In Abuja round, students explored the theme - An Entangled World. They worked in teams of threes' to explore how human relationships, diplomacy, black markets, the science of memory, braving the distance, voices of the inseparable and many more all make the world an entangled web.
In the team debate section, each team debated three times on motions across all the subjects, from policy to poetry. Collaborative writing was an awesome experience for them. Individual teams were given six statements, each from a different subject area, and asked to choose one to argue for or against. It was a swell experience as each team debated with the power of their pen. Scholars Challenge added a new flavour to the way students approach multiple choice questions. Each team were given multiple choice questions to tackle but with an alpaca-powered twist as participants were allowed to mark more than one answer per question but with grading condition.
The climax of the event which took place the second day at National Universities Commission was the Scholars Bowl. Every team was in the theater with a clicker. Teams were made to work together to solve analytic questions and multimedia challenges. It was loud and strategic as students clicked their answers before time ran out. The students learnt and had fun with reckless abandoned.
It is worthwhile to note that students of NTIC performed remarkably outstanding at the competition as students went home with several trophies and medals.
Nigeria’s second round of World Scholars Cup hosted by Nigerian Tulip International Colleges was a huge success and a remarkable experience for students, teachers, parents and everyone else present.
Qualified teams have been invited for the global rounds which will take place in South Africa, Australia, Northern Europe and the Far East and the final round - Tournament of Champions at Yale University.
