Register for the 2015 New Mexico Regional Science Bowls: Now
The 2015 New Mexico Regional Science Bowls will bring together high-school and middle-school teams from across New Mexico. The high-school teams compete on February 7, 2015, in Albuquerque and the middle-school teams on February 28. Launched in 1991, the National Science Bowl is a highly competitive science education and academic event in which student teams compete in a fast-paced verbal forum to solve technical problems and answer questions in all branches of science and math. Each team is composed of four students, one alternate student and a coach. Regional science bowl championship teams receive an all-expenses-paid trip to compete at the national level. High-school coaches can register their teams on the National Science Bowl’s High School Regionals site. Middle-school coaches should consult the Middle School Regionals page.
