The eastern Idaho regionals for the National Science Bowl are coming up, and they’re in need of assistance to make the Middle School and High School competitions fully successful. The Middle School competition will be on March 5, and the High School competition on March 12. The events are entirely virtual this year, and that can be a bit more of a challenge than the in-person events. An overview video of how the events are run is available at the following link:
They’re still short a few scorer roles on March 5 and 12, and they still need a few more quizmaster/moderators for March 12. Please contact Steve Zollinger (email@example.com), the regional NSB coordinator, at BYU-Idaho if you can help out on either of those dates. He will provide the training videos that will help you understand how each role works in their process.
NSB background info: Launched in 1991 by DOE’s Office of Science, the National Science Bowl® (NSB) is a highly competitive science education and academic event among teams of high school and middle school students who compete in a fast-paced verbal forum to solve technical problems and answer questions in all branches of science and math. Regional winners progress to the National events in the Spring. More details are available here.
