A REGIONAL COMPETITION OF THE NATIONAL OCEAN SCIENCES BOWL
Every winter, MIT Sea Grant sponsors the Blue Lobster Bowl, a fast-paced ocean science competition. Rounding its 25th year, the Blue Lobster Bowl includes over 120 students from as many as 24 Massachusetts high schools. The National Ocean Sciences Bowl (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.
Topics include ocean biology, chemistry, geology, physics, history, and economics, as well as ocean-related current events. The winning team competes in the national finals each year in May.
