The Hitachi Southern California Regional Community Action Committee (SCRCAC) attended the LA DWP Regional Science Bowl held in downtown Los Angeles. This year’s theme highlighted the 50th Anniversary of the first man landing on the moon in 1969. This all-day fierce competition brings together 42 teams of the brightest young scientists from high schools all over Southern California.
With the goal of winning the coveted Hitachi Scholarships, these students begin studying complex science concepts during their freshman high school year. The buzzer competition tests the reflexes of the sharpest students, as well as teamwork skills and knowledge in a fun competitive atmosphere using a television game show format that involves toss-up and bonus questions, buzzers and timed responses. Demonstrating grace under pressure, quick reflexes and superior knowledge of advanced science, math and technology concepts, North Hollywood High School (NoHo) made quick work of Bravo Medical Magnet High School.
Having won this competition 20 times in 22 years, NoHo will now advance to the National competition, which will be held in Washington, DC., where it won the second place trophy for the fifth time last year. Hitachi SCRCAC addressed the students and presented Certificates of Superior Performance to the winning team members. Students, parents and LADWP were extremely grateful for Hitachi’s support and presence at this annual bowl, a Hitachi SCRCAC Signature event.
