LAS VEGAS (AP) — Quick buzzers and correct answers will win when 160 students from 27 Nevada high schools — and one school each from California and Utah — compete in the 24th annual Nevada Science Bowl in Las Vegas.
Teams from the Las Vegas area and as far away as Lake Tahoe, Reno, Lovelock, Fallon, Big Pine, California, and Cedar City, Utah, will compete Saturday at Vegas PBS studios.
The competition is hosted by the National Nuclear Security Administration's Nevada Field Office in North Las Vegas.
Questions come in biology, chemistry, physics, math, astronomy and other sciences.
The show is taped for broadcast in coming weeks.
The top 12 teams win cash for their math and science departments.
The winner gets a trip to Washington, D.C., for the National Science Bowl in April.
