Knowledge Bowl is kind of like a team Jeopardy competition. A school’s Knowledge Bowl team is made up of a total of 3 or more smaller teams, each consisting of 4 – 6 team members. Our school’s teams compete against other teams from neighboring schools to see who can answer the most trivia questions in math, science, history, English, and social studies. During each competition, teams compete in a written round (45 multiple-choice questions) and two oral rounds (45 questions each). The winning team is based on the total number of questions answered correctly in all three rounds.
Practices begin on February 2 so please be sure to return the required paperwork to the main office by that date.

Skyridge is proud to be introducing its very own Robotics Club. This will be a hands on club that teaches problem solving while creatively thinking outside the box.
