Florida Regional Science Bowl for Middle School

Stay tuned for details for the 2023 Florida Regional Middle School Competition.

“Launched in 1991, the National Science Bowl® (NSB) is a highly competitive science education and academic event among teams of high school and middle school students who 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 and national events encourage student involvement in math and science activities of importance to the Department of Energy and the Nation.

Regional science bowl championship teams receive an all-expenses paid trip to compete at the national event. High school and middle school teams travel to Washington, D.C. in April. The national events are several days of science activities, sightseeing, and competitions. Teams enjoy the entire science bowl experience and take home many prizes. There are cutting-edge science seminars and hands-on science activities.”

Exemplary Science Teacher Awards

The Exemplary Science Teacher Awards program was started in 1999 by the SCSEA and the Brevard Science Advisory Council to recognize outstanding science teachers in Brevard County. Annually, SCSEA holds a recognition ceremony to honor science teachers from Brevard County who demonstrate best practices in science instruction. Local businesses, community organizations, and educational institutions join forces through the SCSEA to recognize and encourage the dedication, effort, and effective educational practices essential in inspiring students in grades K-12 to excel in science. It is our way of saying thank you for a job well done.
As a community, we want to send a strong message when we identify and reward those great teachers that educate our children. This year’s recognition ceremony will be held in September at the Brevard Zoo. Teachers who were selected for the 2022 recognition are:

Dennis Mattson, Cocoa Jr/Sr High School
Mary Schropp, WestShore Jr/Sr High School
Jennifer Marcoux, Viera Elementary School
Ann Cooke, West Melbourne School of Science
Thomas Englert, South Lake Elementary for Hall of Fame Recognition

Aspiring Scientist Award

Each year, the SCSEA presents the Aspiring Scientist Award to two elementary students whose science fair projects, although not first place winners, showed unusual creativity and scientific thinking. These students are recognized to inspire their continued interest in science.
