2019 Science Iditarod

Overall 1st place team, Chemistry round, and Physics round winners: The Ball Bearings from Shamokin
The 2019 Science Iditarod was held last week on the Bloomsburg University campus. Local high schools sent teams of four students to compete in the quiz competition. Four separate quiz rounds consisted of questions from the Geosciences, Biology, Physics and Chemistry. This year saw a smaller crowd than in years past, with 10 teams from 6 different schools. Winners were recognized in each category with a plaque. The“Gold” team from Wyoming Area won both the Geosciences and Biology rounds. “The Ball Bearings” team from Shamokin won both the Chemistry and Physics rounds.

The points earned in each round were tallied and the top two teams advanced to the Super Round where the overall winner would be crowned. The overall 3rd place winner was team “A” from Wallenpaupack, the overall 2nd place winner was the “Gold” team from Wyoming Area and the first place team was “The Ball Bearings” from Shamokin. Each of the top 3 teams won a trophy, and individual medals. The team members of first place team also each received a $1000 scholarship to attend Bloomsburg University. Bloomsburg University is proud to sponsor this event to encourage high school students in the sciences and plans to offer the contest again next year.
