2022 Nevada Science Bowl Champions Davidson Academy

This past Saturday, Feb. 5, the Nevada National Security Site (NNSS) virtually hosted more than 100 students in the 31st Annual Nevada Science Bowl. Teams of students were tested in a fast-paced question-and-answer format competition, where they showcased their skills in science disciplines, including biology, chemistry, earth science, physics, energy and math.

This year was the second year the Nevada Science Bowl was held on a virtual platform, hosting 21 teams from 18 high schools across Nevada and Utah – all of which competed for a spot on the leader board. The top 12 teams received cash prizes for their school’s math and science departments.

Defending their 2020 and 2021 first-place titles, and securing a spot once again to represent Nevada at the National Science Bowl, are students from Davidson Academy in Reno, Nevada. The math and science departments at Davidson Academy will be awarded a total of $7,500 – $5,000 for Team One earning first place and $2,500 for Team Two earning second place. The National Science Bowl competition will take place in Washington, D.C., April 28-May 2.

The third-place $1,500 winners are from Green Valley High School in Henderson, and Reno High School took fourth and earned $1,000.
