TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Middle school students learned more about science and math Saturday. All while having fun.
It was part of the Indiana Middle School Regional Science Bowl at Indiana State University.
Sixteen teams came from around the Wabash Valley to compete.
They answered science and math related questions in a quiz bowl.
While teams were looking for a win, organizers say it's also about having fun.
"This has become probably one of the most exciting days of the year. Getting to see these middle school kids excited about science math and having a good time," said Jeff Kinne, event coordinator.
Saturday's event is a qualifier for nationals.
The winning team will head to Washington, D.C. in April to compete for the national title.
