Mission Statement

Empowering kids to pursue their dreams in the fields of Math and Science.

Description

The Arizona Middle School Science Bowl (AZ MSSB) competition is a statewide academic competition for middle school students of Arizona. In this event, middle school students compete in a fast-paced verbal forum to solve technical problems and answer questions in all branches of science and math. The competition follows a toss-up question and answer format that is similar to the TV game show Jeopardy. The first place team of this regional competition wins the opportunity to then compete at the National Science Bowl for Middle School Students competition in Washington, D.C. on an all expense paid-trip.

The Arizona Middle School Science Bowl (AZ MSSB) is an initiative of the Arizona Technology Council Workforce Development Committee. It has been organized every year, since 2007, with the support of the Arizona Technology Council Foundation and our sponsors, the AZ MSSB is an academic event held annually to encourage student involvement in math and science activities.

The National Science Bowl for Middle School Students was started in 2002 by the US Department of Energy and includes two types of competitions - an academic math and science competition and a model car race. The car race provides the students with a "hands-on" science and engineering experience where the teams design, build ,and race their model cars.
