Registration Now Open for 2013 Science Bowl Teams
The Energy Department on October 2 announced that registration is now open for the 2013 National Science Bowl. This marks the beginning of the 23rd year of the nation's largest science competition, which is sponsored by the Energy Department's Office of Science. Local middle school and high school students form teams that compete in regional competitions. The winning teams from the regional competitions then advance to the National Science Bowl competition in Washington, D.C., next spring.
Designed to encourage students to excel in science and math and to pursue careers in those fields, the National Science Bowl brings together thousands of students from across the country to compete on a range of science disciplines in a fast-paced, Jeopardy-style format. In 2013, there will be a new high school regional competition in Alaska, as well as five new middle school regional competitions, including events in Alaska and Puerto Rico. Winners of the regional competitions will be awarded all-expenses paid trips to the National Finals in Washington, D.C., scheduled for April 25-29, 2013. To register for their respective regional competitions in the upcoming Science Bowl, teams should go to the National Science Bowl website.
