focus of the morning is "The Salters' Challenge",
which is common to all the Festivals. This is
a competitive, practical activity, for which no
advance preparation is required. In the afternoon
students tackle "The University Challenge", which
is a practical investigation chosen by the University.
This is usually followed by a "fun" lecture or
"pops and bangs" demonstration. The day ends with
a short prizegiving at which the winning schools
receive prizes and all participants receive fun
prizes and certificates.
