The Arizona Science Bowl competition is a statewide academic competition for middle and high school students of Arizona. In this event, students compete in a fast-paced verbal forum to solve technical problems and answer questions in all branches of science and math. The competition follows a toss-up question and answer format that is similar to the TV game show Jeopardy. The first place team of this regional competition wins the opportunity to then compete at the National Science Bowl® competition in Washington, D.C. on an all expense paid-trip.
The Arizona Science Bowl is an initiative of the Arizona Technology Council Workforce Development Committee. It has been organized every year, since 2007, with the support of the Arizona Technology Council Foundation and our sponsors, the Arizona Science Bowl is held annually to encourage students to pursue their dreams in the STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) fields.
The National Science Bowl began in 1991 by the US Department of Energy and includes two types of competitions – an academic math and science competition and a model car race. The car race provides the students with a “hands-on” science and engineering experience where the teams design, build ,and race their model cars.
The Arizona Science Bowl is dedicated to promoting STEM education by engaging students through exciting academic competitions. The spirited nature of this event is meant to inspire students to pursue knowledge in the STEM fields. Our desire is to see future young scientists encouraged and succeed in their STEM endeavors.
