Some Baker Middle School students are heading for the big leagues after a recent win at a regional science competition in the Valley. They now move on to nationals.
A group of five Baker Middle School students will soon be heading to Washington, D.C., to represent South Texas in the national Science Bowl.
"I don't even know if it's really hit us now, that we're going to nationals," Baker science teacher Coreen Flores said. "It's exciting. Very exciting."
The Science Bowl is a science trivia competition. It's like a quiz show. Students are quizzed on everything from biology, to physics and chemistry. At the regional competition, they competed against 20 other schools.
It was not easy preparing. The students not only studied in the classroom, but they met several times a week after school; and now, the hard work begins again.
"It's really exciting," Baker eighth grader Aneel Damaraju said. "More working, more studying, but if we win it will be even better."
The national competition will be taking place at the end of April. They will be competing with 50 other middle schools from around the nation. The top eight teams get a monetary prize for their school.
Kiii News would like to wish the students from Baker the best of luck.
