‘Quiz-a-Whiz’ is our YouTube series, which allows school children to submit questions to prominent public figures or ‘whizzes’, from bestselling authors to Nobel Laureates, on a variety of topics. The questions we receive can range from technical queries and career advice to wonderfully unusual ones like, ‘If my cat was a lot bigger would he want to eat me for dinner?!’

‘Quiz-a-Whiz’ aims to deliver engaging and thought-provoking content which will inspire pupils; encouraging them to be inquisitive and to think about their future career choices. This programme is currently under review: meanwhile, view previous interviews in the library below.
