THE 23RD ANNUAL BLUE LOBSTER BOWL
A Regional Competition of the National Ocean Sciences Bowl
PRIMARY COMPETITION DAY: Saturday, February 29, 2020
Snow postponement day: Sunday, March 1, 2020
Every winter, MIT Sea Grant sponsors a fast-paced, one-day ocean science competition. Rounding its 22nd 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 the biology, chemistry, geology, physics, history, and economics of the ocean, as well as ocean-related current events. The winning team competes in the national finals in Washington, D.C. in April.
