The Meadows Wins Nevada Science Bowl | Education & Schools
Students from The Meadows School claimed the title in the Nevada High School Science Bowl last Friday.
The Meadows competed against 32 other teams from across the state in a regional competition of the 23rd Annual U.S. Department of Energy National Science Bowl, and is now eligible to compete in the National Finals in Washington, D.C., at the end of April.
The National Science Bowl brings together thousands of middle and high school students from across the country to compete on a range of science disciplines including biology, chemistry, earth science, physics, astronomy, and math.
The Department of Energy (DOE) created the National Science Bowl in 1991 to encourage students to excel in mathematics and science and to pursue careers in these fields.
Students from The Meadows School receive an all-expense-paid trip to the National Finals in Washington, D.C., scheduled for April 25-29. The regional tournaments, which host 15-50 teams, are sponsored by federal agencies, national laboratories, institutions of education, and non-profit organizations.
DOE’s Office of Science manages the competition. More information about these events is available on the National Science Bowl website: http://www.science.energy.gov/nsb/.
