What does it take to change the future STEM workforce in Arizona? Answer: One university campus, two days, forty educators and over eighty volunteers from the Arizona tech industry. The Arizona Science Bowl relies on these participants and more to further the cause of building a world-class STEM workforce in Arizona.

This year marks the 11th Annual Arizona Regional Science Bowl—the only math and science competition of its kind. Through this event, local community members further the cause of developing a world-class STEM workforce in Arizona. On January 28th, High School students from throughout the State of Arizona will convene to compete at the ASU West Campus.

4701 West Thunderbird Road
Glendale, AZ 85306, starting at 9 a.m.

It will be followed by a second event on February 4th for Middle School students.

Thirty-two teams of high school students representing 20 schools from throughout Arizona will test their knowledge of science and compete for the first place prize and a free trip to the National Science Bowl in Washington, DC, April 27 through May 1, 2017. The regional and national events encourage student involvement in math and science, provide an awareness of future career options in STEM, and deliver a venue for exercising their achievements.

The Arizona Science Bowl is sponsored and organized by Solugenix Corporation, in coordination with the Arizona Technology Council Foundation. The event is also supported by the ASU New College School of Mathematical and Natural Sciences.
