These local students traveled to New Haven, Conn. on April 13 to participate in the Paleo-Knowledge Bowl at the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History. The students competed as a homeschool team and won first place after answering over 45 questions about paleontology, during a competition which included 16 other teams representing elementary and middle school students in grades 4-6. Shown above with their trophy are, from left, Seamus Fleming, Sophia Montague and Nate Despathy. The Paleo-Knowledge Bowl is a competition for fourth-, fifth- and sixth-grade students and home-schooled students between the ages of 8 and 11. Students work in teams of 3 to answer challenging questions about paleontology, with a special focus on dinosaurs. Points are earned for correct answers and teams with the highest number of points will advance in the competition.
