Academic Bowl

Academic Bowl 2020 and 2021

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Academic Bowl events for spring 2020 were cancelled. Out of ongoing concern for the safety and wellbeing of students and staff, the spring 2021 events have also cancelled.

Plans are developing for the return of Academic Bowl during the 2021-2022 academic year–with 3 day tournaments in both fall and spring semesters.

Watch this space for updates as they develop and for opportunities to try out for Fulton’s Maroon and Gold Academic Bowl teams.

Join the Academic Bowl!

Do you love trivia? Have quick reflexes? Interested in competing in quiz bowl competitions? The Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering is seeking undergraduate Fulton Schools’ students to compete in the ASU-Wide quiz bowl competition for scholarship funding and bragging rights. Learn more about the team here.

The Academic Bowl pits college teams against each other in a fast-paced round of trivia that covers everything from political science to pop culture. The Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering will field two teams of four plus alternates. We are currently seeking 6 new team members.

To audition for a team, you must be a full-time Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering undergraduate student in good academic standing. Tryouts consist of completing a 100-question quiz in the most efficient time possible. Tryouts are graded on a weighted points scale based on time taken to complete the test and the number of correct answers, unanswered questions and incorrect answers. Also, remember to bring your pen and paper!

Meet the teams, learn more about the Fulton Schools’ participation in the Academic Bowl, and the ASU-wide Academic Bowl: https://academicbowl.asu.edu/.

What is the Academic Bowl?

The ASU Academic Bowl is an annual event that began in 2006. This high-energy competition among the university’s colleges. Each four-member team is challenged to stretch their knowledge of every topic—from world politics and pop culture to history and geography—in a lightening-fast question and answer round.

If you have a passion for learning, possess a wide range of knowledge about various (possibly obscure) topics, and can quickly hit the buzzer, this is the event for you.

Each year, the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering supports two teams to compete in ASU’s Academic Bowl competition. The competition draws a larger audience every year with friends, families, and fans donning signs, sometimes costumes, in an effort to cheer on their favorite team.

Early elimination rounds take place at the Memorial Union on the Tempe campus. The final rounds take place in the Eight, Arizona PBS studios on ASU’s Downtown Phoenix campus, where they are broadcast in front of a live audience.
