DOE Science Bowl at SLAC on Saturday,
By Melinda Lee
The DOE Regional
Science Bowl comes to SLAC on Saturday, February 11. For the second
consecutive year, brilliant future scientists from around the Bay Area
will flex their scientific brawn in hopes of winning first prize and a
trip to the National competition in Washington, D.C.
Resembling a quiz
show, the Science Bowl is an academic competition that tests studentsí
knowledge of mathematics and science. Student team competitions take
place in the morning, followed by afternoon elimination rounds and an
awards ceremony. Nobel Prize winner Martin Perl (EE) has graciously
agreed to be on hand to present the winners with their trophies. Tours
of SLAC are also on the agenda.
is the perfect opportunity to encourage young peopleís interest in
scienceónot only is it rewarding but itís a lot of fun, too!

volunteers. There are several ways you can get involved: registering
the teams, escorting the students or serving as Moderators, Timekeepers,
Scorekeepers and Judges. Volunteer training sessions will be provided.
