Tennessee, FMS part of 2011 Science Bowl


Tennessee will participate in its first U.S. Department of Energy Middle School Science Bowl Saturday, Feb. 5.

The competition, which includes Farragut Middle School, begins at 9 a.m. at the Oak Ridge campus of Roane State Community College.

Will have middle school students from East Tennessee the opportunity to showcase their science knowledge, and win an all-expense paid trip to the national competition in Washington, D.C.

In its first year, the program has reached the maximum limit of 12 teams. Each team is comprised of four students, an alternate and a coach. The competition covers numerous disciplines including astronomy, biology, chemistry, earth science, general science, mathematics and physics.


“We couldn’t be more excited about the results of our first year,” Ken Mayes, American Museum of Science and Energy’s deputy director, said. “Our goal is to get children involved and excited about the sciences early. We also are providing a great foundation that will prepare more schools to be involved with DOE’s High School Science Bowl.”

Other participants in this year’s competition are Annoor Academy, Blount Home Education Association, Cedar Bluff Middle School, Cedar Springs Homeschool, Chattanooga Southeast Tennessee Home Educators Association, Cherokee Middle School, Episcopal School of Knoxville, Maryville Middle School, Norris Middle School and Surgoinsville Middle School.
