Los Alamos High School is one of 44 middle and 69 high school teams in Washington, D.C., to compete in the Department of Energy’s National Science Bowl, which takes place Friday to Monday.
“Congratulations to the finalists of our 22nd annual Science Bowl, who represent some of America’s most promising future leaders in science, technology, engineering and math. We look forward to seeing them showcase their knowledge during the final competitions here in Washington, D.C.,” said Energy Secretary Steven Chu.
“Through the National Science Bowl, we’re fulfilling President Obama’s mission to challenge the next generation to forge new advances in science and math and ensure that America stays competitive in a rapidly advancing world.”
During the national competition, the teams will participate in fast-paced, Jeopardy-style academic matches answering science and math questions.
Double elimination matches will follow round robin tournaments. The middle school teams will also race battery-powered electric cars they have designed and built, while the high school teams will solve hands-on science problems.
The students will also attend the USA Science and Engineering Festival to hear from a range of national speakers and see various exhibits on discovery and innovation.
