Forty teams of high school students will compete to answer questions that test their knowledge of biology, chemistry, Earth and space science, energy, mathematics, and physics at the Ames Laboratory/Iowa State University Regional High School Science Bowl, a day-long, quizbowl format competition.

Alex Bebb, Bryan Dutcher, Carson Hayes, Carter Stonehocke and Bryan Woodall will represent Ogden High School in Ames Saturday, January 26. The event is one of 65 regional high school science bowl competitions being held this year as part of the U.S. Department of Energy National Science Bowl (NSB)®. High school teams from Iowa and across the nation will compete for the chance to advance to the NSB® finals April 25-29, 2019 in Washington, DC.

The top 16 teams from the morning rounds will advance to the double-elimination competition in the afternoon. Approximately 80 faculty, staff, and students from Ames Laboratory and ISU serve as moderators, judges, timekeepers, and scorekeepers for the event.
