Happenings: STEaMbowl

College of Science announces first annual STEaMbowl competition

Knowledge is power. Every college student believes this axiom of education. But this month, for five Texas State students, knowledge will become prize money, too.

The Texas State University College of Science will hold its first STEaMbowl competition Thursday, April 21, from 6-9 p.m. in Centennial Hall, room G01. Similar in style to “Jeopardy,” STEaMbowl is a single-elimination quiz competition. The winning team will receive $250.

STEaMbowl will admit eight five-member teams to this year’s competition. All team members must be undergraduate science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM) majors currently enrolled in the College of Science at Texas State.

STEaMbowl will test knowledge in biology, chemistry, computer science, engineering, engineering technology, mathematics, and physics.

Registration costs $25 per team. There is no registration deadline, but only the first eight teams to register and submit payment will be eligible to compete. Any pending team entries will be placed on a waiting list in case a team drops out. Teams can register online here.

The contest is being sponsored by the Houston-Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (H-LSAMP) Scholars Program.
