Los Angeles high school students were vying Saturday for a chance to represent the city in a national science bowl in April.
More than 225 local students, comprising 48 teams, were competing in the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power's 22nd Science Bowl at the utility's Hope Street headquarters downtown.
The competition "tests students' reflexes, teamwork skills and knowledge of science, math and technology in a fun competitive atmosphere following a television game show format," according to a DWP release.
Winners will receive scholarship money and a trip to Washington, D.C., to compete in the U.S. Department of Energy National Science Bowl.
