Star Lane Science Bowl Team Preparing for Nationals


The Science Bowl team from Star Lane Center in Casper is getting ready for its appearance later this month at the National Science Bowl in Washington, D.C.

Star Lane teacher and coach George Vlastos says his team has been training hard since winning the state competition in February.

“Coming out of the state competition, we had a couple of weak spots – for instance, in anatomy and physiology – so we brought in an expert, and she has provided a means to get these (students) tutored,” Vlastos said. “We’re building up a much better foundation of knowledge for once we get to D.C.”

Vlastos says, despite stiff competition, his team should be able to hold its own on the Science Bowl’s grandest stage.

“There are some exceptional teams that show up at nationals, including some teams that are private, pre-Ivy League schools,” Vlastos said. “The brain-power there is exceptional, but I always look forward to watching our students – our team – in the mix.”

Star Lane will compete against 67 other schools in the Jeopardy-style competition April 24-28.

The winning team will receive a nine-day fully-guided tour of Alaska. The second-place team will earn a trip to Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park.

Adam Couldridge, Jordan Ruckle, Eli Vlastos, Ryan Solomon and Abbie Schaible comprise the Star Lane Center team.
