It’s that time of year! We are seeking ambitious undergraduate students interested in participating in the Intercollegiate Meat Science Quiz Bowl Competition. The event is hosted annually by the American Meat Science Association (AMSA) at the Reciprocal Meat Conference (RMC), which will be held at Angelo State University in San Angelo, Texas on June 19-22, 2016. The competition seeks to facilitate interaction among students from different universities, stimulate student’s desire to accumulate and retain knowledge, and to provide a forum for universities to engage in friendly competition.

If you are interested in Meat Science, and are looking for a fun and challenging way to increase your knowledge base, please consider signing up. There will be an informational meeting at 5:30 PM, Thursday, February 4, 2016 in the Rosenthal Meat Center Room 100. Pizza and drinks will be provided. Please contact Clay Eastwood (leastwood@tamu.edu) for more information. Dr. Dan Hale (dhale@tamu.edu) is the Meat Science faculty coordinator for the team.

The Meat Science Quiz Bowl Team is a fun and encouraging way to learn about all topics associated with Meat Science. The team is comprised of undergraduate students who are interested in a competitive knowledge-based forum on Meat Science topics. The team begins practice during the spring semester in the evenings, two to three times a week. As the competition gets closer, the team may practice more.
