LAMS qualifies for National Science Bowl

-A A +A
By Bernadette Lauritzen

Los Alamos Middle School has had a very awesome February. Earlier this month, the LAMS Science Bowl team won their final heart-stopping match against Albuquerque Academy.
Science bowl is a high-speed, “Jeopardy”-like competition where kids work in teams to answer questions in life science, physical science, energy, earth and space science, general science, and math.
LAMS teacher, Naomi Unger, and one of her two teams has qualified for an all-expense paid trip to the National Science Bowl tournament in Washington, D.C. in April.  
“It has been seven years since we qualified for Nationals,” Unger said, “and I couldn’t be more proud of how these students have dedicated themselves to excellence. They were truly a team.”
This has been Unger’s second year coaching the team and last year her two teams placed fourth and second.
The last time the team won was 2008 and this is the first time both the middle and the high school team has qualified, in the same year.
The team began weekly practices in September and moved to twice weekly sessions in January.
The A team consisting of Captain David Gao, Presley Gao, Phillip Martin and Sonyia Williams, will enjoy time in D.C. touring the monuments and spending time on the mall.
