Western regions are preparing again for the annual National Science Bowl, a Department of Energy led competition that pits teams of high school and middle school students against one another in the fields of science and math.
Four-person teams first compete at a regional level, and winners advance to compete nationally at an annual event in Washington, D.C. This year, the national competition is April 26-30. Last year, the Mira Loma High School team from the Western-sponsored Sacramento Regional Science Bowl in California won 1st place.
Admission to the regional events is free, and everyone is encouraged to attend and cheer on their local schools. Additionally, regional competitions are always looking for volunteers to help with timekeeping, asking questions, scoring and other tasks.
So check out your local regional competition hosted by Western:
South Dakota Regional Science Bowl – Jan. 21
Sacramento Regional Science Bowl – Feb. 4
Rocky Mountain Regional Science Bowl – Feb. 4
North Dakota Science Bowl – Feb. 4
Big Sky Regional Science Bowl – Feb. 4
