The Illinois Scientific Surveys held their second annual science showcase on Monday, October 4, at the University of Illinois Illini Union. The day's activities included informative displays from the Surveys as well as the Natural Resources Quiz Bowl, patterned after the popular "College Bowl" television program.
Local elementary and high school teams competed in this year's Quiz Bowl with over 125 attendees present to cheer on the students. News media attending the event included local television stations and newspapers. The science showcase, titled the "Natural Resources Expo," provides an opportunity for the Surveys to present highlights of their research and service activities to students and members of the general public.
