160 high school science and math students from across the state of Minnesota competed on a very cold Friday in January at Macalester College. The 32 teams represented 18 schools from around the state and competed in a new 7-round Round Robin. This year's competition saw some of the highest scoring teams we've seen as well as a high number of rounds that nearly ended in ties. The Round Robin ended with 9 teams in tie brekaers that had to be resolved before moving on.

But finally, 16 teams advanced to the Double Elimination, including new-comers Hill Murray and Stillwater, as well as Prior Lake which returned to the Bowl after a 7 year absence. Wayzata and Chanhassen both sent multiple teams to the Double Elimination, which was rounded out by teams from Blake, Burnsville, Chaska, Columbia Heights, Minnetonka, Saint Anthony Village, Saint Paul Central and Woodbury.
last year, Wayzata made it to the final round of the Double Elimination where their win forced a sudden-death round against Chaska. Chaska won that roound and moved on to Nationals. It was deja vue this year as Wayzata made it to the final round of the Double Elimination where their win forced a sudden-death round against Chanhassen (led by former Chaska coach Jim Lund). But this year the results were different - Coach Karen Hibb's Wayzata team took the trophy this year and will be moving on to the National Science Bowl this spring. Congratulations also go to St. Paul Central for making it to 3rd place, their fourth year in the top 3!

News from Nationals...

First Lady Michelle Obama Participates at National Science Bowl 2010
The winning teams from the Minnesota Academy of Science's Minnesota State Regional Science Bowls received an all-expense paid trip to Washington, D.C. to participate in the National Science Bowl. The nine students from Minnetonka Middle School West and Chaska High School and their coaches spent five days touring, attending hands-on workshops, and competing with like-minded peers at the national event. The National Science Bowl is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy and celebrated its 20th year.
First Lady Michelle Obama showed her commitment to science education and the National Science Bowl by participating in the final rounds of the academic competition by reading some of the questions to the finalists. She motivated the crowd of 550 middle and high school students from around the country in her keynote address when she said, "We want young people energized in the way that you all are, because we know that American brainpower in science and math has always driven this country's prosperity, helping us make the discoveries and to build the industries that have transformed the way we live and work. That's why my husband and his administration want to ensure that every single child in this country gets a good education, particularly in math and science."

Mrs. Obama encouraged the students to continue to ask questions, play and experiment. She said, "In the coming decades, our future scientists, engineers, and leaders are going to help tackle some of our most challenging problems. We are going to need you. Whether it's improving our health, harnessing clean energy, protecting our security, succeeding in the global economy, we're going to need you. Our future depends on a new generation of young Americans who can help reaffirm our role as the world's engine of scientific discovery and innovation."

Middle School Bowl 2010

Our Third year of Middle School competition saw us grow to 19 teams from 10 schools. A fierce Round Robin competition was waged, with 11 teams winning 2 or more of the 4 games they each played. After lunch, Lake Harriet Upper School and St. Thomas More Catholic School competed in a tie-breaking round to determine which of them would join 7 other teams in the Double Elimination.
The match to watch in the Double Elimination was Blake Middle School vs. Hopkins North Junior High. Both teams were new this year and both had done very well in the Round Robin winning (respectively) 3 and 4 of the games they played in that tournament. Their first match in the Round Robin resulted in a win for Hopkins, but just a slight win of 110 over 102. They met again in the first round of the Double Elimination, with Hopkins North winning again. Their final match in the Double Elimination would advance one of them to the top 3 spots for the day and eliminate the other. After 20 minutes of back and forth the teams were extremely close. But finally, the winner was... Hopkins. Congratulations Blake Middle School on an amazing first year we look forward to seeing you again in 2011!
Participating for their second year, Minnetonka Middle School West sent 2 teams to the Double Elimination. Both teams won repeated rounds and finally squared off against each other. Tied as the final buzzer rang, the last question was read and the winning answer came from a Minnetonka 2 team member who said he knew the answer because he had been reading about the Doppler effect just the night before. Minnetonka Team 1 went on to play Hopkins and lost that round but won 3rd place!
While every school approaches building their teams differently, the Minnetonka coach said they don't stack their strongest players in one team, they build their teams for balance so they all have a chance to win. When asked if the two Minnetonka teams were competitive amongst each other, a parent of two team members said the students had great camaraderie and were very well matched. "No matter what happens, it's a win for all of us," she said.
Hopkins faced Minnetonka Team 2 in the last scheduled round. Hopkins had won all but one of their games in the Double Elimination tournament; Minnetonka 2 had won all of theirs. When Hopkins North won this round that meant that both teams now had one loss under their belts. That meant that for the first time in Middle School Bowl history, they needed to play a special final elimination round.
Tension was high in the room, as the sun began to set outside. Eight minutes in to the final round when the teams took a quick break, Hopkins was ahead by only 4 points (12 to 8). And finally, as the last buzzer sounded, the winner of the round, and a trip to the National Science Bowl competition in Washington, DC was Minnetonka Middle School West Team 2! Congratulations to Hopkins North Junior High for a strong second place showing. Let's see if 2011 will be your year to go to Nationals.

  • Minnetonka Middle School West, Team 2, coached by Mitchell Elvebak , won 1st place and a trip to Washington DC to compete in the National Science Bowl.
  • Hopkins North Junior High Team 1, coached by David Beckman, took 2nd place.

Minnetonka Middle School West, Team 1, also coached by Mitchell Elvebak , won 3rd place.
Congratulations to Field Community School (Minneapolis) Team 1 for winning the Middle School Civility Award for their excellent sportsmanship (this is the 2nd time Field Community School has won).

High School Bowl 2010

A record 36 teams from around the state gathered at Macalester for a full day of intense competition.
In the Round Robin event, congratulation go to Chaska High School, Oakland Junior High's 9th grade team, St. John's Preparatory School, St. Paul Central, and Wayzata High School for winning or tying all of their games.
18 teams advanced to the Double Elimination, but only 16 spots were available. A preliminary faceoff was held that pitted Harding High School against Woodbury High School and Mankato High School against one of the Burnsville High School Teams. The competition was close, but Burnsville and Harding emerged victorious to join 14 other teams in the Double Elimination.
The Double Elimination rounds went in to overtime as Wayzata and Chaska faced each other twice, with Wayzata winning the first round. The teams were tied in the final round, but Chaska took a commanding lead in the second half and won the second round to take the title and the right to advance to the Department of Energy National Science Bowl, April 29-May 4 in Washington, D.C. This will be the 5th time that Chaksa, coached by Jim Lund, has gone to Nationals in the last 10 years!
Having only joined the Science Bowl in 2007, this is the 3rd year that Wayzata High School, coached by Karen Hibbs, has made it in to the top 3 spots. They have proven that they are a tough competitor that can go the distance, and all eyes will be on them next year to see if it will be the year they make it to Nationals.
St. Paul Central continues to set records - this was the second year in a row that 2 of the top 4 spots were won by their teams. With the help of coach Randy Knoche, St. Paul Central has gone to Nationals twice, and has placed in the top 3 spots 5 of the last 8 years.
Minnetonka High School's Team 3 was one of 28 teams who were nominated for the Civility Award this year. With 12 nominations, they were the winner, although Benson High School, Columbia Heights High School and Mankato High School were close behind.
Welcome to new teams from: Benson High School, Chanhassen High School, Columbia Heights High School, Minnetonka High School, Oakland Junior High, and St. John's Preparatory. 4 of these 6 new schools made it to the Double Elimination, with Chanhassen and St. John's Preparatory placing 5th at the end of the night, and Minnetonka and Oakland placing 6th.

A half foot of snow kept 7 teams and 10 judges from making it to the 2005 Science Bowl, but the competition was no less nail-biting as a result! The 20 teams that braved the weather included a one-man team from Willmar High School. This special team may not have won a round against the 4-person teams he played, but he did manage to score 30% of the points in the games he played - quite an accomplishment! His good sportsmanship also won him this year's civility award.

Jim Lund, coach of the Chaska High School teams brought 12 sharp students to the competition, and got 3 teams in to the Double Elimination round. Chaska continued their multi-year winning streak, placing 2 teams in the top 3 at the end of the game. But it was Mary Henle's St. Anthony Village Senior High Team, who placed 3rd last year, that took home this year's trophy and won a trip to the National Competition in Washington DC.

2004

Students' heads bent together in conference, a whir of action with hands reaching for the buzzer, a groan of disappointment or a quick high-five - these were the sights and sounds of the Minnesota Academy of Science 11th Annual Minnesota Science Bowl at Macalester College in January 2004. 22 Teams from Minnesota high schools competed in a "College Bowl" format to answer rapid fire science questions, first in round robin, then in a double elimination. Topics covered astronomy, biology, physics, mathematics, chemistry, computer, earth and general science, and current events in the scientific and technical community. The event was generously funded by Xcel Energy and hosted by Macalester College. Local scientists from the University of MN, and General Mills helped out by judging the event.

2004 Nationals

Barb Billington accompanied the Chaska Team to Nationals and wrote to tell us "Today we had the Hydrogen Fuel Car Races - Chaska competed in the Hill Climb (or King of the Hill event). They won the event! Their car, named "Jim" no doubt after coach Jim Lund, was the only car able to climb the 40 degree incline successfully! They attempted the 48 degree incline - and were unable to reach the top - before running out of time."

Barb later wrote "Good Morning from DC. Just thought I'd let you all know that Chaska's Science Bowl Team won the opportunity to compete in the Double Elimination portion of the National Science Bowl. During Round Robin competition they won 7 of their 8 rounds to win the chance to move on.
They competed in two rounds of Double Elimination last night - but unfortunately lost both rounds so they are out of the competition today. Other teams will continue in double elimination to determine the champions.
The Chaska students have won prize money for their school for being one of the top 16 schools at the competition. (I think it's $1000 - I'll know for sure later today.) And they also won $1500 for their school for winning the Hydrogen Fuel Car King of the Hill Challenge earlier this week.
In addition, I will be accepting the 10 year Award on behalf of the MN Academy of Science. I think that this experience has been great. I've got a lot of good ideas for bolstering our program in MN."
