The High School Science Competition Sponsored by Itawamba Junior College.
Following discussions between Itawamba Junior College (Fulton, Mississippi) and local high school science teachers, a periodic science competition was established for students in high schools located in the college's five-county area. The first competition was held in 1983 during which students took written tests in biology, chemistry, and physics. In addition, a team competition was held between four member teams from each participating school. The purpose of the competition was to provide information to teachers on the performance of their students and also to provide a means for teachers to come together to discuss problems confronting them in teaching their science courses. General comments about the competition and an outline of the 1985 high school competition are presented. The outline includes information about the general and team competitions, instructions, and time schedule. (JN)
