science-bowl-questions-copyMr. Michael Kane, Middle School science teacher, moderated Country Day’s first Science Bowl  for Middle School students.

The top seventeen Middle School students in Grades 6-8, were selected to participate in a Science Bowl contest. Mr. Kane asked thirty questions from various subjects in math, earth science, biology, chemistry, physics, and astronomy. They had twelve seconds to answer each question. Each round was a process of elimination. The students with correct answers advanced to the next level and the winner of the contest was a seventh grader. The top five contestants from our Science Bowl are invited to the California State University, Los Angeles Regional Middle School Science Bowl on February 4, 2017.

Regional Science Bowl championship teams are invited to compete at the national event in Washington, D.C. in April. The National Science Bowl (NSB) is a highly competitive science education and academic event among teams of high school and middle school students who compete in a fast-paced verbal forum to solve technical problems and answer questions in all branches of science and math.  NSB is sponsored by The U.S. Department of Energy.

Good luck to our students!
