Other than the coin toss, there was no similarity between this bowl and the one that took place recently in Atlanta.

The participants dressed nicely, as if going to a job interview, and their goal was not so much to defeat their opponents, as to convince them.  Nobody was going to Disney World afterward or went home with a fancy ring.

It was Utah's regnional high school Ethics Bowl, an event that champions moral understanding and civility, while challenging teens to work through complex moral issues.

Andrea Solum walked out of a class she was a substitute teacher for feeling "exhilarated."

She had just witnessed a full class of students be entirely engaged by a science lesson taught under the guise of an escape room. Students had to use what they learned in previous science lessons to solve clues and "escape" the classroom.
