AC will send three teams to compete in the Regional Middle School Science Bowl taking place on March 8. Coached by Tina Duver, the teams hope to build on our students’ success at last year’s competition, as AC Middle School students earned a spot at Nationals and finished in the top six for the Engineering Design Document competition.
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. More than 225,000 students have participated in the National Science Bowl throughout its more than 20 year history, and it is one of the nation’s largest science competitions.
