RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - A team of students from Rapid City Stevens High School has advanced to the National Science Bowl finals in Washington, D.C.

U.S. Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz says the Rapid City students won their regional competition over the weekend.

Moniz says the National Science Bowl pits thousands of middle school and high school students. The format is a fast-paced question-and-answer format where they solve technical problems and answer questions regarding biology, chemistry, Earth and space science, physics and math.

The national finals are April 28 to May 2. The top 16 high school teams and the top 16 middle school teams will win $1,000 for their schools’ science departments. The top two high school teams will get special prizes that will be announced later. Last year, the top teams won trips.
