Albany High Students Take First Place in Science Bowl, Advance to National Competition

ALBANY, NY (March 2005) Competing against 17 other school districts in the Regional Science Bowl, students from Albany High School brought home the winning trophy and secured a place at the National Science Competition.

Congratulations to team members YeQingTao, James Strassner, Nathan O'Brien, Kai Dallas, and Josh Hancox for a job well done.

The Science Bowl, which is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy and was held at the GE Research Center in Niskayuna, is a timed competition (two, eight-minute sessions) in which students answer multiple choice and short-answer questions about math, science, biology, chemistry, physics, and current scientific events.

The first place win for Albany High's team means that students will advance to the National Science Bowl, held in Washington, D.C. from April 28 to May 2. Students will compete against 64 other regional champions at the upcoming event.
