Clark High School students reign as back-to-back champions of the Nevada Science Bowl, hosted by the Nevada National Security Site, after winning the regional title Feb. 2.
The students were awarded a $5,000 first prize for their math and science departments and an all-expenses paid trip to Washington, D.C., to compete in the April 25 to 29 U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) National Science Bowl. The Davidson Academy from Reno placed second, and Coronado High School from Henderson took third prize. The top 12 teams received cash prizes for their school’s math and science departments.
Thirty student teams from 25 schools in Nevada and Utah competed in the 28th annual Nevada Science Bowl, answering questions from science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields.
Each year, more than 15,000 students compete nationally for the opportunity to represent their school at the DOE National Science Bowl.
