Quiz Bowl is a competitive academic club, with members practicing approximately once a week as part of a team and studying on their own time. Top players represent Independence at local tournaments, which are usually held on Saturdays. Students choose a “major” and “minor” area of study. Majors include history, science/math, literature and REMPP (religion, economics, psychology, philosophy), while minors include geography, music and art. There is also a small amount of current events, sports and popular culture. The matches combine individual competition using a buzzer system, in addition to team collaboration on bonus questions. Participating in Quiz Bowl can reinforce classroom lessons while providing a competitive outlet for academically minded kids.
