BILLINGS – High School students tested their knowledge in the 28th annual Big Sky Regional Science Bowl at MSU Billings on Saturday.

Twenty-one four-person teams answered questions in a “Jeopardy” style competition.

The U.S. Department of Energy started the National Science Bowl in 1991.

The Western Energy Power Administration, which is part of the DOE, helped with today’s science bowl.

The Science Bowl can give some more inspiration to the students.

“What I really hope is that they have real desire and love for science and math,” said Holli Krizek, science bowl coordinator and WAPA electrical engineer. “It can influence all aspects of your life and in the future to see how the world works through those tools.”

West won the high school bowl, followed by CM Russell from Great Falls and Skyview.

North Middle School from Great Falls won the middle school bowl on Friday.

West and North will compete in Washington, D.C., April 25-29.
