The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) National Science Bowl is an annual, nationwide academic competition that tests students’ science knowledge. The National Science Bowl was created in 1991 to encourage students to excel in mathematics and science and to pursue careers in those fields.
In a fast paced question-and-answer format similar to Jeopardy, middle school and high school students are quizzed in all areas of science. Competing teams are comprised of four students, one alternate, and a teacher who serves as an advisor and coach.
