    A team of science whizzes from Gale Ranch Middle School in San  Ramon is meeting Fist Lady Michelle Obama on Monday in Washington, D.C.
         
    Obama will be asking the San Ramon students, as well as students  from the Albuquerque Academy in New Mexico, championship bonus questions in the Department of Energy's National Science Bowl.
         
    The two teams will be competing for the middle school championship at the National Building Museum.

    The teams were the top two schools in Saturday's double  elimination rounds and have already won $1,000 for their schools' science departments.
         
    The National Science Bowl is an academic competition that tests  students' knowledge. Middle school and high school students are quizzed in a fast-paced, question-and-answer format.
