Science Bowl is a team contest offered by the US Department of Energy. The format is speed-based buzzer questions; a question is read and the first person to press his or her buzzer on each team earns the right to answer. Questions are equally distributed in 6 categories, Biology, Chemistry, Earth and Space Science, Energy, Mathematics, and Physics. Each question will be either multiple choice (W, X, Y, Z) or verbal short answer.
Lynbrook Science will be conducting tryouts to determine placement on each 5 person team. Regular practices are mandatory for all teams, particularly teams A and B, which will practice at least once a week until the contest with additional outside studying required.
For additional information and some sample questions, please refer to the Science Bowl website.
