Northview eighth graders earned second place in Iowa for the Thinking Cap Quiz Bowl competition. Rebecca Gabrielson, Rachel Reimann, Addy Brooks, Maddy Moen, Olivia Burkhart, Caden Miller, Kyle Melcher, Ian Herzberg, Julian Ferreris, and Noah Schafer participated in the online contest.
The competition is a self-scoring computerized contest that consists of 100 multiple-choice questions. Areas covered include math, geography, government, sports, spelling, science, literature, English, history, general information and just plain fun trivia. It is meant to be a team activity with all takers around one computer. Two chances to answer correctly are given. Points are awarded based on how fast they answer as well as on accuracy. Therefore, teams who do well usually are teams who can come up with a consensus answer quickly. An adult is needed to monitor but no adult help can be given including keyboarding.
