From Friday, April 27, through Monday, April 30, the 69 high school teams and 44 middle school teams will face off in the National Finals and will participate in a variety of activities, including the Lithium-Ion Battery-Powered Model Car Race for middle school students and hands-on science experiments for high school students. As champions of their regional science bowl competitions, each of the 113 teams are awarded all-expense paid trips to Washington, D.C.

  1. Thanks to Dr. Goode (RMS parent) who I believe coached the team. Apologies if I overlooked anyone else. Go ‘Fro!

    1. Oooooh. I like ” ‘Fro”. Are the kids using it? If so, they’ll probably stop now that we like it.

      Congrats ‘Fro-sters!

    2. +1 for Dr Goode shout-out. He’s given a lot of time to the Academic Bowl teams, which are consistently competitive in metro Atlanta competitions.

  2. This is cool. I may be a science nerd, but I didn’t get a chance to do this kind of stuff when I was a kid. I only hope my kid would like the idea when she’s old enough.
