The 2012 Minnesota Science Bowl was held on Saturday, February 11th at St. Thomas University. The seventh grade team of Ellie N, Jack H, Nick D, Yoko K, and Josi A, had a strong showing and gained valuable experience for next year! Both eighth grade teams advanced to the afternoon double elimination round, playing hard fought matches against excellent competition. Laura A, Leah H, Michaela V, Connor L, Ethan B, Joey M, Michael D, Maddie H, Sierra L, and Cody T represented Field School with great poise and impressive math and science expertise.
This was our culminating event and all three coaches would like to express how proud we are of all Science Bowl participants, including those of you that couldn't be with us on Saturday: eighth graders: Emma S, Fred A, Harrison R, Isaac F, Lenna J, Penelope L, Rachel A, Rachel S, Ruby G, and seventh graders: Brandon G, Dayton L, Elsa D, Kaily R, Katie F, Madison B, Olivia M, Roberto S, and Shelby L.
We hope you enjoyed the Science Bowl season as much as we did. Eighth graders, we encourage you to investigate and participate in similar programs at your high schools. Seventh graders we hope and plan to see you all again next year!
