About The Blue Lobster Bowl

The Blue Lobster Bowl, Massachusetts' regional marine science quiz bowl, is one of the 25 annual regional competitions that comprise the National Ocean Sciences Bowl (NOSB) competition.

During the full-day competition, teams of high school students are quizzed on their knowledge of ocean science subjects including chemistry, biology, engineering, history, ecology, climate change, and weather.

The winning 2015 Blue Lobster Bowl high school team will represent Massachusetts in the National Finals Competition, April 23-26, 2015.

The NOSB was created in 1998 in honor of the International Year of the Ocean and, since its inception, the competition has grown to include 300 schools and over 2,000 students annually.
