The Upper School's Science Bowl team finished in the top 10 at the National Science Bowl (NSB) competition in Washington, DC.
The team—Ridings Bald '20, Anup Bottu '20, Rishab Jayanthi '19, Stephen Skrynecki '19, and Aaron Yu '21—finished ninth in the competition. Sixty-four teams from across the country participated at nationals.
The NSB, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy, brings together thousands of middle and high school students from across the country to compete in a fast-paced question-and-answer format where they solve technical problems and answer questions on a range of science disciplines including biology, chemistry, Earth and space science, physics and math.
Westminster previously won the national title in 1994.
