Funding Request – Arizona Science Bowl
The AZ Science Bowl is an annual STEM competition committed to building a strong tech workforce in Arizona. Through a fast-paced question-and-answer competition students are empowered to pursue careers in science and technology.
The Arizona Science Bowl is in need of equipment for the event. We are asking for monetary donations that will allow us to purchase the following items:
- 16 Samsung Galaxy Tablets A 10.1″ 16GB (Wi-Fi), Black (Certified Refurbished)
- 16 Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1 Cases – [Heavy Duty] Full Body Rugged Cover with Built-in Screen Protector for Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1″
Each year, thousands of sheets of paper are used for question and answer (QA) books given to Moderators and Judges. These books are single-use, so every year our carbon footprint grows. In addition, QA books are often amended by the National Science Bowl right up until the competition, leading to more paper and hours and hours of manual labor by volunteers.
Going digital will provide the following benefits:
- Greater QA book consistency
- Less paper used/reduced carbon footprint
- Simplification of time-consuming process
- Better use of volunteer time
These tablets will be used for years to come, ensuring a successful Science Bowl for generations of AZ students. With the date of the first competition fast approaching on February 17th, we really need your assistance. Help the AZ Science Bowl make a step in the right direction by donating today.
