National Ocean Sciences Bowl

The National Ocean Sciences Bowl (NOSB) is a national, high-school science competition administered by the Consortium for Oceanographic Research and Education (CORE). It uses a quiz-bowl format, with lockout buzzers and extended team challenge questions to test students on their knowledge of oceanography. This includes the subjects of geology, biology, chemistry, history, technology, and physics. The competition was started in 1998. The current director of NOSB is Dr. Susan Haynes.
