ARBC Seattle Regional Qualifier Registration Form 20234
The American Regional Biology Competition (ARBC) is a student-led organization aiming to provide an accessible, team-based competition environment for passionate biology students. In-person regional competitions are designed to be accessible and doable for a curious AP Biology student. The topics covered will include cell and molecular biology, genetics, anatomy and physiology, biosystematics, bioinformatics, ecology, ethology, and evolution.


Rules: All rounds are calculator-open and internet-closed (with the exception of Paper Round). 

1. Paper Round (50 minutes, internet allowed) -- You and your team will read 2 scientific research papers or articles and be asked 1-3 comprehension questions on each. There will also be 1-3 synthesis questions. 
2. Team Round (30 minutes) -- Your team will be given 6 short-answer questions (1-2 sentences each).
3. Wave Round (30 minutes) -- There will be 15 multiple true-false questions given to your team in order of increasing difficulty. Each question links to the next and you cannot move backwards to change answers to previous questions.

The upcoming ARBC Seattle Regional Competition will be held in April 2024. Students in teams of 3-4 may participate and have a chance to win prizes! The top team(s) of each region will also qualify for the 2024 ARBC National Competition, to be held in May 2024. You can sign up even if you're not in a team! We will match interested individuals and create teams from the individual pool, so signing up without specific teammates in mind totally works.
