Two James F. Doughty School Teams represented the state of Maine at the U. S. Department of Energy’s 2018 Regional Northeastern Middle School Science Bowl at MIT on Saturday, February 26, 2018.
Two teams of eighth graders did extremely well in their first showing. One team won five of their seven matches and the other secured a spot in the semi-finals by winning six of their seven initial matches. Each team has four participating members with one alternate. Each match is a series of toss-up multiple choice and short answer science and math questions combined with opportunities for bonus questions.
On Tuesday, March 13, 2018, JFDS will hold an informational session for our grade 6 and 7 students in hopes of continuing the tradition. Come and meet the teams and our two high school coaches, Nick Jacobs and Noah Robinson.
