NOSB in the News and How You Can Help
In early October, Science magazine ran the article For $1 million: Will an ocean science quiz program survive tough times?, which focused on federal budget cuts to education programs such as the NOSB. The well-written and detailed article was actually penned by NOSB participant Darby Hopper, a high school senior at Okemos High School in Okemos, Michigan who has competed at the Great Lakes Bowl! Another NOSB supporter, David Shiffman, created a blog post to “Save the NOSB” after reading Darby’s article.
