Michelle Obama testing San Ramon students in D.C.

School's science whizzes among top two vying for National Science Bowl middle school championship

A team of science whizzes from Gale Ranch Middle School in San Ramon is meeting First Lady Michelle Obama on today in Washington, D.C.

The First Lady will be asking the San Ramon students, as well as students from the Albuquerque Academy in New Mexico, championship bonus questions in the Department of Energy's National Science Bowl.

The two teams will be competing for the middle school championship at the National Building Museum.

The teams were the top two schools in Saturday's double elimination rounds and have already won $1,000 for their schools' science

departments.

The National Science Bowl is an academic competition that tests students' knowledge. Middle school and high school students are quizzed in a fast-paced, question-and-answer format.
