Buzz Bowl Winter 2017

 

Buzz Bowl Winter 2017

  • Jan 8 2017
  • Tyee middle school was a great place to expand. We had 3-times more kids this time and plenty of room for parents to sit and watch their kids buzzing. This Buzz Bowl was organized for aspiring NSB contestants. We opened it to self-formed teams as well as individuals looking for a team.

    Learning from the past event, the game format was modified to offer level appropriate questions for beginners and kids preparing for NSB. We also separately awarded beginners and experts. The teams had a lot of fun challenging other unknown teams to buzz faster and score more.

Rohan Iyer participated in buzz bowl in summer,2016 and again in Jan 2017, and both times he loved the session. He enjoyed the NSB format of this competition which was a nice supplement for his practice to NSBregional competition at Portland. Great job Aum for designing the unique format of speed bowl for science topics and helping middle school community to prepare with NSB competition. We hope there will be multiple rounds of this competition next year once a quarter would be nice.

My son Saketh Dhulipalla, 7th grade EMS team participated in buzz bowl that was conducted by Aum Upadhyay. He had a great time participating and learning from the session. He had a real NSB like experience competing against many other schools. The event was organized very well and done by Aum and other high school kids. Great planning and well implemented. We would like to see more buzz bowl events to help middle school kids prepare and get ready for NSB competition.

My sincere thanks for all the hard work you did to pull off this event. It ran very smoothly which can only happen because you and your scent of volunteers really sweated through all the details. Great job.BRI want my 9th grader to really observe what you did because its a great example of not just going off and doing community hours to check a box, but rather to find something that touches on an area that a person has a natural interest in and then create something from there.
