PG Science Bowl

I LOVE the Prince George’s County Science Bowl! It is an annual science game show of elementary and middle schools conducted by Prince George’s County Public Schools and it’s AWESOME! The kids get SO into it: they laugh, they cry, it’s better than Cats! and you LEARN STUFF! like that the largest digital camera is in fact on top of a volcano in Hawaii. So friggin’ cool :D

My love, however, is not necessarily echoed by many of the other journalists in my office. So this year, in order to get more people (emotionally) involved in what is possibly the greatest county-specific tournament of all time, we took a page from the NCAA March Madness handbook and created brackets!

    Ha! I don’t see local favorite Whitehall Elementary, but University Park is a safe bet. The police should be on hand to keep the rioting to a minimum after the finals.
