Science Bowl Volunteer Information

Each year dozens of Ames Laboratory scientists and staff, along with faculty and staff from Iowa State University, volunteer their time to serve as judges, moderators, timers, scorekeepers and runners for Science Bowl. Without their assistance, hosting such an event would just not be possible.

Many volunteers return year after year because they truly enjoy the event and the opportunity it presents to work with such a large number of talented students. Others appreciate the challenge of matching their own science knowledge against the competitors'. And there's always the Science Bowl Volunteer T-shirt!
