2011 N.J. Regional Science Bowl

Kids love competition. They jump for opportunities to use their talents and make their parents proud. Some excel in mathematics and science, but you don't see many fans in the classroom on test days. So where can all the science buffs shine?

In his State of the Union address, President Barack Obama insisted, "It's not just the winner of the Super Bowl who deserves to be celebrated, but the winner of the Science Fair." It is in this spirit that the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) Office of Science sponsors the National Science Bowl (NSB). This mentally-invigorating competition begins with regional events across the United States.

Regional events take place during the early months of the calendar year for students in two separate educational levels: middle school and high school. Teams compete one-on-one in a series of rounds, answering science questions from physics, chemistry, astronomy, biology, earth sciences, and mathematics. The first place team from each regional competition will advance to compete in the final competition in Washington, D.C., at the National Building Museum on May 2, 2011.
