Quiz Bowl is an academic quest for knowledge.  Quiz Bowl tests the knowledge of participants while planting and proposing new questions and concepts.  Teams have weekly practices which consists of reviewing previously used questions in the attempt to be prepared for future meets.  Meets are held rather irregularly, usually once a month.  At a quiz bowl meet, participants form a team of four each person having a pencil and paper for computations and a buzzer.   The team is encouraged to work together to reach a conclusion as fast as possible. At the meets, each school is asked 50 questions with a half-time break to switch out team members.  There is no way to study for the meets as the questions are obtained from every conceivable topic, from astronomy to zoology. However, participants enjoy the challenge and a positive learning experience is achieved.
