Students headed to Washington, D.C. for National Science Bowl

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, WA.-- On Saturday, in a battle of the brains, high school students from all over Washington went out to Columbia Basin College to compete in the Department of Energy's Regional Science Bowl for a chance at the National Finals in Washington, D.C.
     26 teams came to the event, from 16 different high schools. All of those teams spent months preparing for the questions they would be asked about biology, chemistry, engineering, and much more.

As Jacob Skeels, of the DOE told KNDU, the entire day was a spectacle of smarts. 

"It is really inspiring," Skeels said, "And it's humbling as well to see the intelligence that the students have."

While all the students competed admirably, it was Redmond High School, a team made up entirely of freshmen, that came out on top after the elimination round. They'll be heading to the national competition in April.
