WASHINGTON, D.C. - A team of middle school students from Amarillo is headed to Washington, D.C. for the National Science Bowl.
Students from Crockett Middle School won their regional competition for the 2018 National Science Bowl which secured their spot for the final competition this spring.
The top 16 high school teams and the top 16 middle school teams in the National Finals will win $1,000 for their schools’ science departments.
“I am proud to oversee a Department that provides such a unique and empowering opportunity for our nation’s students, and I am honored to congratulate Crockett Middle School in advancing to the National Finals, where they will continue to showcase their talents as the top minds in math and science," said U.S. Secretary of Energy Rick Perry.
The NSB brings together thousands of middle and high school students from across the country to compete in a fast-paced question-and-answer format where they solve technical problems and answer questions on a range of science disciplines including biology, chemistry, Earth and space science, physics and math.
