Or are you interested in founding your school’s Science Bowl team?

This Febuary Lynbrook’s Science Bowl Team A competed at the 2015 SLAC Regional Competition and beat out The Harker School to earn 1st place and a trip to Washington DC for the 2015 National Science Bowl Competition!

     Congratulations to: Pranav Lalgudi, Nithin Buduma (captain), Oliver Dong (and Shamrock the Horse ? ) and Jeffrey Chang, Richard Liu for their amazing performance!

Science Bowl is one of the most prestigious national science competitions, and is hosted by the U.S. Department of Energy. It provides an intellectually stimulating atmosphere to interact productively with other students and communicate ideas effectively. Science Bowl is an activity that uniquely combines teamwork and leadership skills with deep and comprehensive knowledge of various science subjects, and can help you stand out from the competition.
Program Description: This course aims to prepare students for the Science Bowl competition. It contains both lecture and practice round components. Students will be taught Life Science, Physical Science, Earth Science, Energy, Mathematics, and General Science. The coach will work heavily on reinforcing science knowledge in the listed categories as well as improving buzzing strategies and time management necessary for science bowl.

Students who qualify for competing teams are accepted to top schools.
