MIT Sea Grant College Program organized and hosted the 16th annual Blue Lobster Bowl (BLB) at MIT on March 3, 2013. The tournament this year included 126 participants from 12 Massachusetts high schools and was free and open to the public. The student teams were split into divisions and tested in classrooms across campus through quick-answer buzzer questions and thought-provoking team challenge questions. MIT Sea Grant research scientists and partners also offered information to students on marine science and ocean engineering careers. The winning team from Lexington High School will compete against 24 other regional champions in the 16th Annual National Ocean Sciences Bowl (NOSB) at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in April 2013.

MIT Sea Grant's Kathryn Shroyer, regional co-coordinator for this year's event says, "The BLB is a fun way to get young people interested in the study marine science, and it's more than just memorizing a bunch of facts. The tournament helps challenge students to work together as a team to learn and solve problems."
