Ocean Bowl

National Ocean Sciences Bowl Competition-

What is the NOSB competition? The NOSB is an academic competition and program that addresses a national gap in environmental and earth sciences in public education by introducing high school students to and engaging them in ocean science, preparing them for ocean science-related and other STEM careers, and helping them become knowledgeable citizens and environmental stewards. Our Regionals competition is called the Spoonbill Bowl and takes place at USF early in the Spring Semester.

What happens at the Spoonbill Bowl? The Spoonbill Bowl consists of a round-robin and single-elimination formats for teams of high school students. The format involves a timed competition of multiple-choice or short-answer questions within the broad category of the oceans. Questions are drawn from the scientific and technical disciplines used in studying the oceans (physics, chemistry, geology, atmospheric science, biology, etc.) as well as topics on the contributions of the oceans to national and international economics, history, and culture. Generally AES takes two, 5-person, teams to competition.
