Energy Bowl Success

Posted on March 10, 2015

On March 6th-8th, Queen's sent a team to compete at the 2015 EnergyBowl in Calgary. The team consisted of: Steve Diederichs (Geo Eng), Sarah Sharp (Eng Chem), Jackie Smith (Chem Eng) and Nick Volkmer (Eng Chem). The EnergyBowl gathers schools from coast-to-coast, in a variety of disciplines, to compete in a trivia challenge and case study. Students are quizzed on their knowledge in geosciences, economics and engineering through the trivia portion of the event. The case study provides the opportunity to showcase critical thinking skills as students prepare and present an analysis of the energy, environmental, political and social needs pertaining to a real-life energy problem. This year's case examined the need for stabilization and energy growth in the developing country of South Sudan. The Queen's team is very proud to be the first team East of Saskatchewan to ever compete at the games, and is delighted with their first place finish against the other 15 teams.
