The Highland East Academic Team competes in quiz bowl competition by answering questions dealing with all topics of human knowledge, including: math, science, social studies, literature, fine arts, sports, and general trivia. Academic team members benefit from studying a broad range of academic subjects, increasing memorization and study skills, learning to work in teams in a cooperative and competitive arena.
A quiz bowl competition is typically played with a lockout buzzer system between two teams of four players each. A moderator reads questions to the teams, whose players try to be the first buzz in with a correct answer. If correct, they score points for their team. The team with the most points at the end of the game, wins.
The Highland East Academic Team (HEAT) is part of:
The Oklahoma Association for Academic Competitions (O.A.A.C.)
