The Saturday afternoonevent was in high demand with tickets sold out in a few days. More than 100parents and kids attended the seminar. The event also raised $2000 fromadmission fees and sponsorships, in which $500 will go to the LHS Science BowlTeam, and $1500 to the USABO. Read the Post Event Report by Sherry Zhu.
