The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) National Science Bowl is a nationwide academic competition that tests students’ knowledge in all areas of science and mathematics. Middle and high school student teams are comprised of five students and a teacher who serves as an advisor and coach. Teams are quizzed in a fast-paced question-and-answer format. There are 70 high school regional competitions held in January – March throughout the U.S. including Alaska, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. About 9,000+ high school students participate in the 120 regional competitions. The regional competitions host 15-65 teams and are sponsored by federal agencies, national laboratories, institutions of education, and non-profit organizations. The National Science Bowl is sponsored and managed by the DOE’s Office of Science.
Winners of the regional competitions are awarded an all-expenses paid trip to the National Finals in Washington, D.C., scheduled for April 25-29, 2013.
