Southeast Regional Blue Heron Bowl Competition – Feb. 18

Thursday, January 05, 2017

UNCW has been selected as the host for the Southeast round of the National Ocean Sciences Bowl, known as the Blue Heron Bowl. The event will be held at the Watson College of Education on February 18.

The NOSB is an interdisciplinary ocean science education program of the Consortium for Ocean Leadership based in Washington, D.C.  The event brings together the nation’s brightest high school scholars and provides an opportunity to explore study of the ocean – a topic generally not covered in the high school curricula.

At the regional event at UNCW, two teams, each composed of four students and one alternate, will square off against each other to answer questions related to marine science. Many of the participants have a marine science or general science teacher who sponsors their training and serves as a coach.

Winners will be invited with all-expenses-paid to compete at the National Ocean Sciences Bowl at Oregon State University in April.

The event is free and open to the public.
