UPDATE FOR THE SILENT QUALIFIER!!! THE QUALIFIER HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED DUE TO THE SCHOOL CLOSURE TO WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 22, 2021 4:20 - 5:15 PM.
FIRST SCIENCE BOWL INFORMATIONAL MEETING IS WEDNESDAY AUGUST 25, 2021 AT 4:15 IN RM 428
Science Bowl at the Fort has been a popular club competition since it started in 2013. Fort Settlement has attended regionals every year since 2014, won regionals three times and attended nationals in Washington DC three times. We have won 1 National title in 2015 and placed in the top 7 in our last two visits to the competition in 2016 and 2019.
Science Bowl is a competitive team competition that involves quiz bowl buzzer like question rounds. For exact details and rules of how we compete check out the National Science Bowl webpage.
Each year the format for deciding the top 15 students that will comprise the three teams depends on the school's current situation, especially in regard to safety protocol. This year we will have an on campus after school silent test to determine the top 15 students on Wednesday September 22, 2021 at 4:15 - 5:15 PM.
Then those 15 students will go on to compete in a series of live rounds to determine which teams each of the 15 players will be placed on over the following three weeks.
It is important to note that although 3 teams will be registered, Texas A&M does not always approve all 3 teams to attend. The top team, team 1 is automatically accepted while team 2 and team 3 will have to wait to see how many other schools enroll in the regional event. Usually we do not have confirmation on team 2 until December - end of January, and team 3 usually is not notified until the very last deadline date in February passes.
Wednesdays from 4:15 - 5:15 PM in rm 428 (upstairs)
