Quiz bowls are a valuable teaching technique regardless of the subject matter being quizzed. They present project information in a semi-competitive setting characterized by attitudes of friendliness, cooperation and fairness. A quiz bowl is not meant to be a memorization process, in that members only study questions and know the answers to those questions. It is a motivational tool to provide a fun way to encourage members to learn project information.

Quiz bowls teach such life skills as self-discipline, observation, listening, and making and defending decisions.
They teach members to:
■ Develop reasoning and critical-thinking abilities;
■ Make sound decisions;
■ Improve their personal skills;
■ Develop quick and accurate powers of observation;
■ Express themselves concisely;
■ Develop poise, self-discipline and self-confidence;
■ Develop project knowledge and skills; and
■ Participate as a member of a team, thus developing Cooperation and teamwork among project members
