Science Bowl
The BPA Regional Science Bowl is a fast-paced academic bowl that tests student knowledge in all aspects of science:  math, geology, chemistry, physics, environmental science and more. The competition is round-robin style and lasts all day (7 a.m. – late afternoon) on the campus of the University of Portland.  The event includes an afternoon engineering competition for student teams that do not advance into the afternoon final rounds.

Middle schools from counties in western and central Oregon and Washington State west of the Cascades, and high schools in counties in western and central Oregon, southwest Washington and the Olympic Peninsula, are eligible to compete in the BPA Regional Science Bowl. Registration is free, and snacks are provided. All competitors receive commemorative prizes, and the winner gets an all-expenses paid trip to Washington D.C. to compete in the national finals sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy.
