Area high schools are invited to send teams to the 28th Annual Science Bowl at UT Martin and can register for the Nov. 10 event by email or phone. The registration deadline is Oct. 26. The rules for Science Bowl can be accessed on the web at


In conjunction with the Science Bowl, the Kentucky Lake Section of the American Chemical Society will offer a free workshop on Safety in the Chemistry Workplace on Nov. 10 at the University of Tennessee at Martin.

Participants in the workshop will be made aware of hazards which may have been overlooked and of the resources and options available to remedy those hazards. This workshop is intended to create a better, safer place for students to learn. Topics will include personal protective equipment, waste management, proper storage of hazardous materials, etc.

This workshop is sponsored by the Kentucky Lake Section of the ACS with support from an Innovative Projects Grant from the ACS. Literature and other mementos will be provided free for participants. Mileage will be partially reimbursed and a certificate of participation will be presented to each attendee.

The science bowl is sponsored by the UT Martin Student Affiliates of the American Chemical Society. For the written test covering biology, chemistry and general science, there is no limit on the number of students each school may enter. Each test will have 25 questions from each of the three categories.

From the written test, eight schools will be chosen for the afternoon bowl competition based on comparing the average total score of two of each school's highest scoring students. The rules are similar to the former TV show, "The G.E. College Bowl." The prizes will include trophies for champion and runner-up schools, gold, silver and bronze medallions for all team members. All schools will be provided Chem Time Clocks on which the element symbols replace the usual 24 numbers for military time and each students will get a wallet card and a drink cup featuring periodic table.

For registration or information, email skairee@utm.edu or call 731-881-7450/7454.

This year instead of playing all the bowl games in the afternoon, we will start the games around 11 AM so that the four games would have been played by lunch time. After lunch the final three games will be played and everybody can go home before 3 PM. Instead of starting at 9 AM, we would start at 8:30. The program looks like below:


8:30 - 10.00 Written Test for students (EPS 219, 202 & 207)

Refreshments & Green Chemistry Presentation for teachers (EPS 227)

Drawing to match schools for the bowl games (A vs B, C vs D, etc)

10:00 ­10:15 Group pictures

10:20 ­11:00 Demonstration (EPS 204)

11:15 ­ 12 noon Bowl Games in UC (ballroom & UC 230)

Lunch Break

1:00 - ~2:15 Finals & Awards


Four top scoring students and teachers from all schools would get souvenir Science Bowl T-shirts. Champions/first runner-up teams get the trophies for the schools and gold medallions for team members. Second runner-up team members get bronze medallions. Top scoring students from each school and overall scores will be listed on the Science Bowl web page. The highest (overall) scoring student will receive CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics.

Please let me know any comments that you may have. If 8:30 is too early, we can start the written test a bit late for your school. All schools need to have at least 4 students for playing the bowl games as per rules listed on the web at








Four to five students (from West Tennessee region for Kentucky Lake Section of the American Chemical Society) scoring high on the chemistry portion of the written test will be invited to participate in the national examination (to be administered in Martin either April 27 or April 30) for selection to the International Chemistry Olympiad (to be held in Moscow on July 15)


NOTE: Attention was given to changing the date but facilities availability and schedule conflicts forced us to stick with the March 3 date. In future we may come back to scheduling on the second Saturday in November.
