Elsie Effah Kaufmann is a Ghanaian academic, biomedical engineer and quiz mistress for the National Science and Maths Quiz. Before Elsie Kaufmann started hosting the show in 2006, Marian Ewurama Addy was the quiz mistress from 1993 to 2000 and Eureka Emefa Adomako from 2001 to 2005.

We are all enthused about the show of knowledge and the in-depth analysis of scientific and mathematical problems exhibited at the National Science and Maths Quiz (NSMQ).

Although we all may not have attended glamorous schools who make us proud at the NSMQ stage, we, in one way or the other, share in the joy and pride of the moments.

The trolls, bragging rights and all the shenanigans that characterize the whole NSMQ event is very much admirable. However, we always seem to forget the woman behind the question, whose efforts brings the intelligence of these students to bear.
