Area high schools are invited to send teams to the High School Science Bowl at the University of Tennessee at Martin and can register for the Nov. 12 event by email or phone.
The registration is free and the deadline is Oct. 31.
The event is sponsored by the UT Martin Student Members of the American Chemical Society.
For the written test covering biology, chemistry and general science, there is no limit on the number of students each school may enter. Each test will have 25 questions from each of the categories. From the written test, eight schools will be chosen for the afternoon bowl competition based on comparing the average total score of two of each school’s highest scoring students.
Prizes will include trophies for champion and runner-up schools and gold, silver and bronze medallions for team members. Each school will receive a copy of the Merck Index on behalf of the Kentucky Lake Section of ACS and Merck & Company.
Rules for the science bowl, along with the program and results of the last bowl, can be found at http://www.utm.edu/staff/skairee/scibowl/. For registration or information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (731) 881-7450 or 881-7454.
