Inspiring Tomorrow’s Ocean Leaders

Inspiring Tomorrow’s Ocean Leaders

The NOSB is an academic competition and program that addresses a national gap in environmental and earth sciences in public education by introducing high school students to and engaging them in ocean science, preparing them for ocean science-related and other STEM careers, and helping them become knowledgeable citizens and environmental stewards.

Regional NOSB competitions are held at universities, research institutions, laboratories, science centers and aquaria across the county. Each year, approximately 2,000 students from 350 schools, and 1,500 volunteers participate in the program.
