The West Virginia Regional Science Bowl is affiliated with the National Science Bowl, which is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy. The Science Bowl is a tournament-style academic competition which tests students’ knowledge in all areas of science and mathematics. During the competition, teams face-off in a fast-paced question-and-answer format exploring topics from a full range of STEM disciplines. Middle school and high school teams include four students plus one alternate. At least one teacher serves as a mentor and coach for each team. The top three winning teams from each RESA area may advance from the preliminary competition to state and potentially national competitions. Participation rules, sample questions, and general Science Bowl information may be found at the National Science Bowl website.
