New Mexico: During March, Albuquerque hosted the

the Intertribal Middle School Science Bowl (IMSSB).
The turn out was incredible -- 35% more science fair
projects, and 100% more science bowl teams!

Science Bowl is an academic competition that
tests students' knowledge in all areas of math and
science. More than 20 teams participated. The 120
students and chaperones came from over 10 states and
30 tribes. Students were quizzed in a fast paced
question-and-answer format similar to TV quiz shows.
In the end, the Norman Public School District took
home the winning plaque. They represented AISES at
