Odle Middle School students Neil Chowdhury, Mahathi Mangipudi, David Lee, Daniel Sun and Emily Feng have brought the Regional National Science Bowl title home to Bellevue.
This Odle team was unstoppable at the Bonneville Power Administration Regional Science Bowl Competition held on Feb. 4 at the University Of Portland. They placed first after competing against 64 teams from Washington and Oregon.
The science bowl is a buzzer-based fast response quiz program testing the participants’ depth and breadth of knowledge in the areas of chemistry, biology, physics, mathematics, energy, earth and space.
The team is coached by Rina Chowdhury under the guidance from Interlake High School teacher Michael O’Byrne.
The Odle team will next head out to Washington D.C. on an all-expenses paid trip to compete in the national finals sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy to be held April 27 – May 1 alongside regional champion teams from all over the country.
