NEVADA SCIENCE BOWL TO CROWN CHAMPION THIS SATURDAY

Thirty High Schools compete in Nevada’s prestigious academic tournament.

Some say the big bowl game is this Sunday. 160 high school students believe the real bowl game is this Saturday! The Nevada Science Bowl. Teams from 30 high schools will square-off Saturday morning in a highly competitive fast-paced academic event. The students will answer tough questions in all branches of science and math. The top 12 teams win cash prizes for their school’s math/science department. The first place team receives $5000, plus an all-expenses paid trip to Washington, DC, for the Department of Energy’s National Science Bowl in April.

The Nevada Science Bowl will be held at VegasPBS starting Saturday morning. Matches will get underway at 7:30 a.m. and will continue until a champion is crowned at about 4:30 p.m.

“Nevada Science Bowl is celebrating 25-years of encouragement and support for science and math education in Nevada,” said Darwin J. Morgan, Director, Office of Public Affairs, National Nuclear Security Administration Nevada Field Office. “The students and parents gathered here for the Nevada Science Bowl are working for a better and brighter future and we are proud to help them.”

The Nevada Science Bowl is grateful for the generous contributions that make this competition possible.
