    Meetings: Tuesday during RTI Block or Thursday at 7:35 am.  

     The North High Science Bowl  team is a team of 5 students  recommended by math and  science teachers and then selected based on auditions.  They  participate in the regional  Science Bowl hosted by the U.S.  Department of Energy’s Ames  Laboratory and Iowa State  University.  Science Bowl is a  rapid-fire, daylong competition  in which high school students  answer questions from a wide  range of science and math disciplines. The winning team receives an all-expenses-paid trip to the DOE’s National Science Bowl in Washington D.C.   The questions cover a variety of topics: biology, chemistry, mathematics, physics, earth and space sciences and energy

    The format is similar to the National Science Bowl. The morning session is a round-robin tournament, with the top 16 teams advancing to the double-elimination competition in the afternoon session.  Each 16-minute match has a two-minute intermission. Questions are read aloud by a moderator. Any player can buzz in to answer a “toss-up” question within 5 seconds. Points are awarded for a correct answer, and the team can then answer a bonus question. At the end of the match, the team with the most points wins. Ames Lab and ISU scientists and staff serve as judges, moderators, timekeepers and scorekeepers.

    Three times we have finished in the top 16 in the state. In 2017, we placed 5th out of 40.
