What is Brain Bowl?
The Brain Bowl Academic Tournament is a Jeopardy-style general knowledge competition, with questions focused on high school academic subjects. Teams from local schools are tested on various subjects, including mathematics, English, science, Caribbean history and current events.
Uniting local schools and encouraging pupils to stretch their academic abilities, the annual Brain Bowl also aims to get pupils to work as a team and develop their critical thinking skills.
