The National Ocean Sciences Bowl

Pamela Baker-Masson
First Paragraph

When was the last time you were blown out of the water?

Meet the students of the National Ocean Sciences Bowl (NOSB) who will impress even the saltiest of oceanographers with their command of marine science. The knowledgeable and competitive group of students and coaches will converge upon Miami to participate in the annual National Ocean Sciences Bowl, April 2 and 3. Inaugurated in 1998, this educational program was developed to stimulate interest among high school students in the ocean sciences and demonstrate to the public the importance of the oceans in our daily lives.
