AIKEN, SC (WFXG) -

Teams of students from schools across the CSRA are preparing to compete in a regional science competition that will test their math and science knowledge.

The competition will be held March 1 at USC Aiken and will determine which team will represent our region in the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science's National Science Bowl in late April. 

The team that wins the regional competition will win an all-expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C. for the National Science Bowl. The winner of the national competition will win prizes for the team members and their school.

During the competitions, teams of four students will face off against one another in a fast-paced, question and answer format. They'll have to solve math problems and answer questions related to a range of disciplines, including astronomy, biology, earth science and physics.

Eleven schools in the CSRA are competing in the regional competition on March 1:

 

  • CSRA Home Education Association of Augusta
  • Curtis Baptist School of Augusta
  • Davidson Fine Arts Magnet High School of Augusta
  • Evans High School
  • Greenbrier High School of Evans
