Academic Team

Club Description: This club is all about knowing random facts and having lightning reflexes. Two 4-person teams sit across from each other and listen as a moderator reads from a packet of questions. Each student has a buzzer to can ring in and answer the question. Questions may be about physics or politics or the Emmys—you never know. The Byram Hills Academic Team participates in many types of competitions. First there are your basic MACC and WACKO competitions with 4 rounds per game: Toss-up, Bonus, 60 Seconds, and Stump the Experts. As a plus, these competitions offer donuts or bagels to the students. Then, there is the NAQT with bonus questions and exciting topics dealing with current events. Sound fun? Well, it is. New members are always welcome.
