Westminster students to compete in Science Bowl

Posted

Students from Woodrow Wilson Charter Academy in Westminster will compete Feb. 2 in the regional competition of the Department of Energy’s National Science Bowl.

Teams of four students face off in fast-paced, question-and-answer sessions that test their knowledge in all areas of science and mathematics. The winning team from each of the 47 middle school and 64 high school regions will compete in the national finals April 25-29 in Washington, D.C. The regional competition is Feb. 2 at Mountain View High School in Loveland.

At the finals, winning teams can score adventure trips to Alaska and national parks across the country to learn first-hand about science in the field, as well as trophies, medals, and supplies for their schools’ science departments. Since the first competition in 1991, more than 290,000 students have faced off in the national finals.

The knowledge that former competitors have acquired, as well as the collaborative skills and study habits they learned along the way, have led them to success in a variety of fields. Many have become researchers; others are science and math professors at some of our some of our nation’s most prestigious universities. 

Teams include four students, one alternate, and a teacher who serves as an advisor and coach. The competition tests the students on a range of science disciplines including biology, chemistry, earth science, physics, energy, and math. The Department of Energy Office of Science manages the National Science Bowl and sponsors the final competition. Learn more at http://science.energy.gov/.
