Five Stratford STEM Magnet High School students will compete in the Tennessee Science Bowl February 22, 2014 at Pellissippi State Community College. The Science Bowl is a fast-paced academic competition that offers teams of high school students from across the state of Tennessee a chance to match their wits in math and science. The winner of the Tennessee Science Bowl will advance to the National Science Bowl® in Washington, D.C., on April 24-28, 2014, all expenses paid!
The competition is played in a question-and-answer format in which two student teams attempt to answer toss-up and bonus questions. Teams are randomly placed in divisions and play against the teams within their division during the round-robin rounds. The top two teams in each division advance to the single-elimination rounds in the afternoon.
Stratford is the only Metro Nashville Public School participating in the event. The other Nashville area school is Ensworth High School.
