Some area high school students put their science skills to the test Wednesday afternoon.
Thirteen teams of four from eight different high schools competed in the RESA 5 Science Bowl at WVU at Parkersburg.
These students all know a great deal about science, but in order to win they must be able to answer questions quickly.
The competition is designed to benefit students long past their high school careers.
"We figure people will be answering questions and doing studying to prepare for things quite probably for all their lives. So, we play a lot of question and answer, and it also promotes learning," Shawn Weaver, the event moderator, said.
No word yet on who won, but the top two teams will move on to the state competition in Morgantown.
The national science bowl will take place in Washington D.C.
