January 29, 2020 — by Oliver Ye

This Feb. 8 at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center, the Science Bowl team will be competing at regionals in hopes of gaining a ticket to the national competition. 

The students representing Saratoga are: senior Jeffrey Xu; juniors Rohan Kumar, Enoch Luk, Isaac Chang, Samuel Wong and Akshar Sarvesh; sophomores Jeffrey Hu and Ethan Zuo and freshmen Nilay Mishra, Anthony Wang and Adam Xu.

To qualify to compete in Science Bowl, a fast-paced “Jeopardy!”-esque science buzzer competition, participants went through an extensive tryout process, taking a general test and also excelling in a buzzer simulation with topics ranging from biology, chemistry, math, physics, earth science, astronomy to energy.

For the Falcons, the greatest challenge this year will be facing Lynbrook, who they are predicted to face in the afternoon elimination rounds of the competition.
