Native students in Science Bowl

Madison American Indian students take second trip to National Science Bowl

By Gretchen MironA group of five students from the Madison Metropolitan School District’s (MMSD) American Indian Science and Engineering Society is headed to Washington D.C. this weekend to compete in the National Science Bowl.

The team earned the opportunity by defeating nine other teams at the Intertribal Middle School Science Bowl in Albuquerque, N.M. on March 22 and 23. This is the second year in a row they will compete in the National Science Bowl.

The National Science Bowl is a fast-paced competition to test middle school students’ knowledge of math and science, ranging between pre-algebra, algebra, earth science, physical science, life science, and the history of science. Difficulty levels vary depending on the round.
