Back-to-back Nevada Science Bowl champions from Clark High School came in first place at the DOE National Science Bowl’s Division Team Challenge (DTC) in Washington, D.C., April 28. Nevada Science Bowl is hosted annually by the Nevada National Security Site.
Testing through real-world science and engineering problems, the DTC tasks must be completed in 60 minutes. Clark High School was awarded $500 for its science department as first prize.
Though the five competing students did not move on to the double-elimination rounds of the National Science Bowl, they proudly represented the strength of science, technology, engineering and mathematics education in Nevada.
As the Feb. 2 Nevada Science Bowl winner, Clark High School was awarded $5,000 for its math and science departments and an all-expenses paid trip to compete in the nation’s capital.
Sponsors of the 2019 Nevada Science Bowl included the DOE NNSA NFO (signature sponsor), MSTS, DOE Environmental Management Nevada Program, Bureau of Reclamation, SOC, Navarro, jgms and the National Atomic Testing Museum.
Registration for the 2020 Nevada Science Bowl, Jan. 31 to Feb. 1, will open this summer. The winning team will advance to next year’s National Science Bowl, April 30 to May 4.
