Congratulations to the Ste. Genevieve Middle School Science Bowl team, who recently participated in the regional competition for the 30th National Science Bowl®, held at Washington University on Feb. 22, 2020.
The National Science Bowl® is a nationwide academic competition that tests students' knowledge in all areas of science and mathematics. Teams face-off in a fast-paced question-and-answer format, being tested on a range of science disciplines including biology, chemistry, Earth and space science, physics, energy and math.
The Ste. Genevieve Middle School team included: Adam Allen (8), Charlie Corbett (7), Sophia Fritsch (7), Jeremiah Kunz (7) and Aidan Lewis (7). This was the first year SGMS had a team, and 11 schools sent teams to participate in the event! The team’s coach and advisor SGMS science teacher Katie Deimund said that the team showed a great effort competing against some of the established teams—they even won one of their five rounds! The group learned from the experience, and knows what to expect come this time next year!
The winning team from each of the regional competitions will compete in the National Finals, held in Washington, D.C. from April 30 to May 4, 2020. The 2020 National Science Bowl is sponsored by the Department of Energy and managed by the Office of Science. Each year, the NSB draws more than 14,700 middle- and high-school competitors.
