Students from Lakewood High School Team 1 won the Colorado High School Science Bowl today. They will go on to the 23rd National Science Bowl in Washington D.C., Apr. 25-29, where they will compete for the national title against more than 400 students from 70 high schools.
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) began the Science Bowl tradition in 1991 as a way to encourage high school students to explore math and science. The Department of Energy's Golden Field Office once again was one of the major sponsors of this year's Colorado Science Bowl, along with DOE's National Renewable Energy Laboratory.
Teams from across the state competed in the day-long competition at Dakota Ridge High School in Littleton.
In the final round, Lakewood High School Team 1 topped Cheyenne Mountain High School Team 1 of Colorado Springs with a score of 38-16 after correctly answering rapid-fire questions in physics, math, biology, astronomy, chemistry, anthropology and earth sciences.
Cherry Creek High School Team 1 of Greenwood Village rounded out the top finishers to take home the third place trophy.
