Students from Lux Middle School and Lincoln East High School,
both in Lincoln, and Creighton Preparatory School in Omaha will be
in Washington, D.C., this weekend for the National Science Bowl.
This year's competition will begin Saturday.
The bowl is a round-robin tournament in which students are quizzed on a variety of scientific topics, including astronomy, biology, computer science, physics and math.
Each team is comprised of four students, an alternate and a
teacher who coaches the students.
The National Science Bowl is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy.
