Question writers play a very important role in the NOSB because they provide over 3,000 questions used in the competition. A competition includes 2 rapid fire rounds of multiple choice or short answer questions and 2 critical thinking team challenge questions (TCQs).
The questions are drawn from the scientific and technical disciplines used in studying the oceans. Categories include: Physical Oceanography, Chemistry, Biology, Geology, Geography, Marine Policy, Technology, and the Social Sciences.
If you are interested in question writing for future NOSB competitions please contact the National Office at 202-232-3900 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
