Friday, February 13, 2015 - 10:05am
Northwest Career and Technical Academy (NWCTA), a public magnet school in Las Vegas, recently won the Nevada Science Bowl. NWCTA did not lose a single match, defeating Reno High School in the finals. More than 30 teams from 29 schools from throughout Nevada, and from parts of California and Utah participated in the competition.
The Nevada Science Bowl is the premiere academic competition in the region. During fast paced matches, students “buzz-in” to answer exceptionally difficult questions covering science and mathematics.
The Northwest Career and Technical Academy team received $5000 for their school’s math/science departments, plus an all-expenses paid trip to Washington, D.C., for DOE’s National Science Bowl in April.
NNSA’s Nevada Site Office is the signature sponsor of Nevada Science Bowl. Nevada Science Bowl also receives donations from Northrop-Grumman, National Security Technology (NSTec), Navarro-Intera, Centerra, the Bureau of Reclamation, the National Atomic Testing Museum and VegasPBS.
