JASCO Team wins Brain War 2014

The “JASCO Sound Crew” placed first out of 37 teams at the inaugural competition of Brain War, a fundraising event for the Discovery Centre held Saturday February 22 at Halifax’s Saint Mary’s University. The team consisting of Terry Deveau, Mikhail Zykov, Christopher Whitt, and Nicole Chorney competed in a 6 hour marathon of brain-straining challenges that tested their knowledge in science, technology, engineering, art, and math.

The JASCO team went on to win against the four other highest ranking groups at the February 27 Gala event and final where they faced off on stage in front of peers and spectators and won the championship trophy. The Gala was hosted by CBC News Nova Scotia host Tom Murphy and CBC Mainstreet's Stephanie Domet.

Brain War 2014 was sponsored by Saint Mary’s University, Dalhousie University, and Nova Scotia Community College.
