This exciting math and science competition involves middle schools from throughout our region (San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Kern, Monterey, and San Diego Counties). The winning team receives an expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C. to compete in the National Science Bowl! This is an amazing contest that gets students excited about math and science and encourages them to seek jobs in these fields.
The Science Bowl will be held Saturday, February 28, from 9am to 4pm at Arroyo Grande High School. There are two short training sessions (also at AG High) to choose from (attend only one), January 28th in the evening or February 22nd in the afternoon. See the flier for details.
Each year, through the Bright Minds scholarship program, PG&E awards ten renewable scholarships of up to $20,000 per year for up to five years and 90 one-time $2,000 scholarships.
