Canyon Junior High students were crowned the champions during this weekend’s Science Bowl competition held in Amarillo, Texas. Pantex has sponsored the bowl for 21 consecutive years in hopes of fostering a love of science and math in the youngsters of the Texas Panhandle.
For months, 29 teams from 14 area schools prepared for the competition, where they squared off for a test of science and math knowledge in a game-show type format.
Around 150 Pantex employees and community volunteers assisted with Science Bowl. The competition features teams of four students answering science and math questions in a round-robin format, followed by a double elimination round after lunch. The team will travel to Washington, D.C., in April to compete with dozens of other teams from across the U.S. for the national title.
