Interswitch has announced the commencement of its annual national science competition, Interswitch SPAK 3.0 in Nigeria.
A statement on Tuesday noted that students from senior secondary schools were now free to register for the competition on the Interswitch SPAK portal.
“InterswitchSPAK is an annual Pan-African competition aimed at re-igniting STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) subjects among secondary school students.
“For the registration, each school is required to present its best six science pupils in SSS2. However, for mixed schools, at least two female pupils must be among the best six. Every registered pupil will participate in the qualifying examination at any of the centres across Nigeria. The top 81 pupils will proceed to the finale to battle for the crown of Nigeria’s best science student,” the statement said.
The Chief Marketing and Communication Officer, Interswitch, Cherry Eromosele, urged more girls to participate in the on-going registration.
