Pakistan National Science Bowl


National Science Bowl 2021-22


In July 2019-20, PIF partnered Center for Economic Research Pakistan (CERP) and LUMS Society for Better Educational Engagement (BEE) to pilot test the Science Bowl format in Pakistan. Over 50 teams/schools from 3 major cities participated in the 3 Regional Science Bowls (Islamabad, Lahore, and Karachi) of which 12 qualified to play in the Nationals (held virtually due to COVID19).

These 12 teams included: Lyceum, St. Patrick’s, KGS, Nixor (Karachi), Beaconhouse Margalla and G15, Cadet College Hasanabdal, EMS High (Islamabad), Aitchison, LGS 1A1, STEM School, and Beaconhouse Defense (Lahore). After an intense competition, Karachi Grammar School was declared Winners of Pakistan’s first ever Science Bowl Contest.

 This year, we hope to bring the National Science Bowl to an even bigger stage by targeting more than 100 schools competing for the crown that will include a mix of virtual and physical events (where possible) including school level science bowls, regionals (Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad), and then Nationals.

We are interested in Schools registering either

  1. to qualify for their Regional Science Bowl through a Qualifying Round open to anyone, or
  2. to agree to hold a school science bowl that meets certain criteria to qualify for a direct entry into the Regionals.
