NEWPORT NEWS, VA – Some of Virginia’s brightest young minds will meet next weekend at the U.S. Department of Energy's Jefferson Lab to see if they have what it takes to be Science Bowl Champion. The National Science Bowl® – sponsored by the Department of Energy’s Office of Science – is an annual academic competition among teams of four or five students.
Registered teams from across the Commonwealth will compete at the Virginia Regional Middle School Science Bowl on Saturday, March 4 at Jefferson Lab. The winning team will then represent Virginia at the National Science Bowl® finals later this year. Teams from 20 schools are registered for this year's competition.
