The SCSEA Science Bowl for Middle School Students (grades 6-8) is a fast-paced question and answer format, similar to Jeopardy, during which students answer questions about earth science, physical science, life science, math, energy, and general science.

The purpose of this program is to encourage and reward students involvement in math and science activities, improve awareness of alternative fuel technologies, and provide an avenue of enrichment for academic science achievement.
Teams of four students plus an alternate and one teacher/mentor. Any current public, private, or home school students in grades 6, 7, or 8 are welcome to participate. [REGISTRATION IS CURRENTLY CLOSED.]
Now is a good time to mention that you should review the competition rules. Should your team win the SCSEA science bowl and compete at the National Science Bowl, you should review the national rules as well.
Participating teams will receive a electric (rechargeable lithium battery) car kit, to be used in the car demonstration portion of the competition. This competition tests the creative engineering skills of many of the brightest math and science students as they gain hands-on experience in the automotive design process.
