U. S. Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz announced on Monday that a team of students from Los Alamos High School will join other teams from around the nation at the 2014 National Science Bowl in Washington, D.C.
“The National Science Bowl challenges students to excel and heightens their interest in fields vital to America’s continued scientific advancement,” Moniz said. “Congratulations to these students for advancing to the National Finals. I wish them the best of luck.”
Los Alamos, coached by LAHS chemistry teacher Kathy Boerigter, was very excited for her team. She said, “The team was amazing. They studied like crazy and practiced for weeks.” She added, “And wouldn’t you know it. They had to beat their arch rival Albuquerque Academy to advance to nationals.”
Members of the team included Katherine Wang, Wilbur Wang, Alex Swart, Willie Zhao and Alex Wang.
Science Bowl teams compete in a series of head-to-head competitions against other school districts in the region. Teams are questioned in a rapid recall format about earth, space, energy, physics, chemistry, biology and math.
