Have you ever heard of the Washington, D.C. regional science bowl competition?  Are you a teacher or a middle or high school student   looking for ways to test your knowledge in all areas of science? Get your students engaged in this renowned national competition by learning more through a science bowl mock competition, now offered to middle and high school students in Washington, D.C. 

The Washington, D.C. regional science bowl competitions are part of the Department of Energy's National Science Bowl Competition. Each year, regional competitions across the country earn teams spots to compete in the national competition, held in Washington, D.C. each spring. The National Science Bowl is a Jeopardy-style competition for student teams across the country to compete in a fast-paced question and answer format being tested on a range of science disciplines including biology, chemistry, Earth science, physics, energy and math.

The U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Minority Education and Community Development will demonstrate how middle schools and high schools in Washington, D.C. can get involved by providing a hands-on, interactive science bowl demonstration. The mock competition allows students to experience the competition, practice answering science questions in a fast-paced environment, and to meet staff from the Department of Energy.

If you’re interested in learning more about the mock science bowl demonstration or would like to request a demonstration, please contact Chester Scott at Chester.Scott@hq.doe.gov or at 202 586 4676.
