What Great Flood story predates the Old Testament? How long after the Big Bang was our Sun formed? How many different names are there for the game pieces in backgammon? The answers to all of these and many other mysteries will be answered during the 2019 Academic Super Bowl season. This year’s theme is “The Fertile Crescent,” and students will learn about the science, math, culture, and literature of Mesopotamia and Ancient Egypt.
The junior high callout for Academic Super Bowl will take place after school Thursday, Dec. 6, in Room 304. All seventh- and eighth-graders are invited. Snacks will be served, and prizes will be awarded based on a mock competition. The event will conclude about 4:30 p.m. If you can’t stay for the full event, see Mr. Gerrety to sign up.
