More than 300 students from western and central Oregon and Washington participated in the event at the University of Portland. LOJHS students were among three winners of the SciClips Science Bowl 2014 Student Video Contest. It is the first year of SciClips, a competition Google sponsors in which teams create short videos expressing how much they love science. Videos were judged on presentation, science acumen, teamwork and creativity. Winning teams earned a $200 gift certificate for their sponsoring school’s science laboratory.

For 23 years, the Bonneville Power Administration has hosted the BPA Regional Science Bowl, aiming to encourage youths to get involved in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

After 17 rounds at this year’s competition, Science Infinity Club of Bellevue, Wash., and Stoller Middle School Team 1 of Beaverton, snagged the top spots in the science bowl.
