Local school to compete in Science Bowl

Team of four from Woodrow Wilson Charter School to show off knowledge in science and math

Posted

Middle school students from Woodrow Wilson Charter School in Westminster will compete Feb. 1 in the 2020 National Science Bowl, sponsored by the Department of Energy and managed by the department’s Office of Science.

The competition will take place at Mountain View High School in Loveland.

Four students from each competing team will face off in a fast-paced, question-and-answer format that will test them on a range of science disciplines including biology, chemistry, earth and space science, physics, energy, and math.

The winning team from each of region will compete in the national finals from April 30 to May 4 in Washington, D.C.

At the finals, winning teams can earn 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.

Each year, the National Science Bowl draws more than 14,700 middle- and high-school competitors. More than 305,000 students have faced off in the finals since the first competition in 1991. The knowledge that former science bowl competitors have acquired - and more importantly, the habits of study that they’ve learned along the way - have led them to success in a variety of fields. Many have become researchers; others are science and math professors.
