Sacramento's Mira Loma High School comes in 2nd place in the National Science Bowl. The top two teams will receive $2,500 to take back to their schools to support their science departments.
Altogether, nearly 10,000 high school students and more than 5,000 middle school students from all 50 U.S. States, District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico participated in this year’s regional competitions.
DOE created the National Science Bowl®in 1991 to encourage students to excel in mathematics and science and to pursue careers in these fields. Approximately 325,000 students have participated in the National Science Bowl®since its creation. Students may sign up to compete in next year’s National Science Bowl competition beginning in October.
DOE’s Office of Science manages the National Science Bowl®and sponsors the finals competition.
