DOE “Science Bowl” Challenges Elite Students from throughout South Carolina and the Augusta Area in Regional Competition

AIKEN, S.C. (Feb. 27, 2018) – America's next generation of scientists and engineers will put their knowledge to the test Saturday during the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Savannah River Regional Science Bowl® Competition, which has attracted 24 teams from across South Carolina and the greater Augusta area.

During the event, teams face-off in a fast-paced question-and-answer format similar to the television show “Jeopardy,” being tested on a range of science disciplines including biology, chemistry, Earth science, physics, energy and math.

“I was eager to compare ‘brains’ with others in this competition,” said Collin Ulrich, who competed during the 2017 regional competition at the University of South Carolina Aiken.  “It was an exciting challenge that broadened my perspective in many areas.”

When:   Saturday, March 3, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. (winners announced approximately 5 p.m.)

Where:  University of South Carolina Aiken -- Business and Education Building
