A team of high school students from Sugar Land won 8th in the national competition for the 2017 National Science Bowl (NSB).
As a result, they received $1,000 for their efforts. The students are Andrew Liu, Shree Mohan, Abin Antony, Shreyas Balaji and Anish Patel.
“The National Science Bowl continues to be one of the premier academic competitions across the country and prepares America’s students for future successes in some of the world’s fastest growing fields in science, technology, and engineering,” said Dr. J. Stephen Binkley, acting director of the Department of Education’s Office of Science, which sponsors the nationwide competition, now in its 27th year.
“Each year the DOE Office of Science provides this unique opportunity, and I am honored to congratulate all the competitors who are advanced to the national finals, where they will continue to showcase their talents as top students in math and science.”
The NSB brings together thousands of middle and high school students from across the country to compete in a fast-paced question-and-answer format where they solve technical problems and answer questions on a range of science disciplines including biology, chemistry, Earth and space science, physics and math.
