Texas Academy of Mathematics and Science

Students to compete in regional science bowl

A group of the University of North Texas’ Texas Academy of Mathematics and Science students is set to compete in a regional science bowl this weekend.

Four TAMS members of the Junior Engineering Technical Society will travel Saturday to the regional competition hosted by Texas A&M University, which serves as one of 61 host sites across the country.

Members have been practicing since the previous semester by drilling on scientific areas including biology, chemistry, physics, astronomy and Earth science.

If the team does well, it would head toward the national competition in Washington, D.C., in April.
