The team practiced four times a week since August to prepare for this challenging competition. Every person on the team also spent countless hours reading science textbooks and memorizing science facts in their fields of expertise. This is the 10th time in the last 11 years that the LAHS team has advanced to represent New Mexico at the national competition. Science Bowl is a nationwide academic competition sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy that tests the knowledge of middle and high school students in all areas of science and mathematics.
