Five students from Mira Loma High in Sacramento, Calif., are the National Science Bowl champions. They beat 66 other teams to win a trip to the International Science School at the University of Sydney in Australia this summer.


Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne with congratulations to the Mira Loma High science team that won the National Science Bowl yesterday in Washington, D.C. To win, the Sacramento students correctly located a white dwarf on a complex diagram. Also from California, the middle school champions from Hopkins Junior High in Freemont. And it's not all about diagrams and equations. For a hydrogen fuel cell challenge students built and raced their own model cars.
