High school students have the opportunity to compete in teams in a single elimination science bowl or attend three different presentations across campus. In the past an average of 500 students per year have come from all around the region to participate. Students are able to learn and explore aspects of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics on a campus setting with SFU students, faculty, and local professionals. Students also have the opportunity to showcase the skills and knowledge that they have learned in their high-school classrooms and compete with other schools in the science bowl.
