Brain Bowl
Do you like trivia? Have a passion for literature, science, or math? Are you a quick thinker? Brain Bowl is an annual academic competition among teams from participating Florida community colleges. Teams consist of up to five members who compete regionally, state-wide and nationally.

The four subject areas questions cover include: 
  • Humanities
  • Mathematics
  • Social Sciences
  • Natural Science 
College-wide competition-style tryouts take place every year in early September. Practices generally begin the last week in September. The practice schedule varies, but teams usually meet twice a week.

Math Team
Broward College's Math Team has won both team and individual competitions at the state level.
The team competes at the annual Florida state Math Olympics, held each year near the beginning
of April. Team members travel to Jacksonville to participate in the event, which is located at the
University of North Florida. There are two parts to the event, a team portion and an individual
portion. Winners take home trophies and cash prizes and may also receive a BC scholarship. 
Team membership is based on a math test administered by the Honors College.

Interested students should contact Coach Sanford Geraci, 954-201-6634, sgeraci@broward.edu for more information.

Competitive speaking is an important co-curricular activity through which students are offered training and experience in developing their oral communication skills.

 
Model United Nations
The BC Model United Nations researches, debates, and engages with problems and ideas that have an international impact.  Members travel to UN simulations and work to solve these problems with students from around the  world, all while observing the diplomatic idealism of the United Nations.  Currently, the Model UN group travels to the University of Florida, Santa Fe College, and Penn State University.
