National Ocean Sciences Bowl
The National Ocean Sciences Bowl (NOSB) is a national academic competition in which teams of high school students compete for the regional and national title. The matches feature quiz-bowl style rounds and challenge questions that test ocean and Great Lakes knowledge.
The questions focus on math and science related to ocean and Great Lakes biology, chemistry, geology, physics, technology, history, and economics. The competition format includes a 6-minute buzzer round, two team challenge questions, and another 6-minute buzzer round. Team challenge questions require data analysis and synthesis of science and math concepts.
Regional competitions are held throughout the nation in February and March, and the final national competition is held in April.
