Plum High School students will be participating in an upcoming regional competition of the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science’s National Science Bowl.
The competition will be held Saturday, Feb. 23, at CCAC South Campus in West Mifflin.
Now in its 23rd year, the competition—by the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science—was established to encourage students in the challenging but essential subjects of science and mathematics; to excel and ultimately pursue careers in those fields.
The winner of the regional competition will receive a fully paid trip to Washington D.C. to compete in the Office of Science’s National Science Bowl in late April and the winner of the national competition will win prizes for the team members and their schools. These prizes will be named at a later date.
