Students in Troy Middle School’s Science Bowl recently scored well in the preliminary competition at the 2018 Argonne National Laboratory Regional Middle School Science Bowl.
The bowl competition is sponsored by the Department of Energy designed to challenge young students who are passionate about science and engineering.
The areas of the bowl were life science, physical science, energy, mathematics, and Earth and space science. Argonne scientists and engineers organized and ran the event, and University of Chicago graduate students served as moderators, judges, scorekeepers and time keepers.
Troy Middle School science bowl students who competed were eighth-graders Amy Gusewelle, Haley Maser, Daniel Schalk and Sarah Shay and seventh-grader Trenton Marski.
TMS Science Capstone teacher Dr. Barbara Will-Henn is the coach.
Thirteen Illinois middle schools competed in teams of four at the bowl, each with one alternate. The meet was held at Oswego East High School.
