Today’s high school students will become tomorrow’s leaders charged with ensuring the health of the ocean amid the growing issues of coastal resilience to extreme weather, erosion and inundation, loss of biodiversity, and resource depletion.
How are they preparing?
The National Ocean Sciences Bowl® generates interest in and excitement for the oceans in high school students and offers young people a challenging competition in which to learn about environmental issues. The program inspires youth to pursue science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields and promotes future careers in the marine sciences.
A national program with approximately 2,000 students participating each year, the NOSB encourages stewardship of the ocean by participating students, their teachers and families. Each year, on average, 34 states plus the District of Columbia take part in 25 regional bowls.
The NOSB values strong partnerships with foundations, corporations, individuals and education partners that share our goal: to prepare our nation’s future workforce for success in STEM careers and encourage an interest in oceans and marine life. Through our broad community – including high school teachers, community organizations, federal agencies and international corporations – we are engaging students and building a love of the ocean that will continue well after high school graduation.
In 2014, the NOSB is focused on strengthening the competition in key states, increasing diversity among participating students, and seeking partnerships to increase our technology and engineering content. Your donation will make this possible.
