Longfellow MS Students Participating in National Science Bowl

Students from Longfellow Middle School are slated to participate in the United States Department of Energy Office of Science’s National Science Bowl regional competition next Saturday, March 7, at Jefferson Lab in Newport News, Va. The competition consists of matches between teams of four that face off in a fast-paced, question-and-answer format.

The winner of the regional competition will win prizes for the team members and their schools and be Virginia’s representative in the middle school national finals of the science bowl in late April. In the finals teams compete for adventure trips to places like Alaska and the national parks across the country to learn first-hand about science in the field, as well as trophies, medals, and supplies for their schools’ science departments.
