CSUB Hosts 25th Annual Kern County Regional Science Bowl

California State University, Bakersfield (CSUB) will host the 25th Annual Kern Regional Science Bowl in the Dorothy Donahoe Hall on Saturday, Feb.11, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The Science Bowl is a national event, sponsored by the Department of Energy, in which high school teams compete in a fast-paced, “Jeopardy”-style forum with topics covering fields such as biology, chemistry, physics, math, computer science, earth science and astronomy.

“Having participated in each KCR Science Bowl since 1996, the Science Bowl is the most enjoyable extracurricular activity I have been involved with on campus. I am always amazed at the enthusiasm and preparedness of our high school students for this event,” said Dr. Roy LaFever, Kern County Regional Science Bowl Coordinator.

Seventeen schools will be involved in this year’s Science Bowl, with 160 student participants. The winning team will advance to the Department of Energy-sponsored National Science Bowl in Washington, D.C. Local sponsors include Lengthwise, California Resource Corporation (CRC), Chevron, Mellinium Pension Services, Greg Bynum, and Jon and Lynn Carrithers.

The event has been held on the CSUB campus for the past 22 years. Free parking is available in Lot J.
