SHORE BOWL 2021 will be VIRTUAL and held on March 6th and 7th
Given the constraints of the COVID-19 pandemic, it has been decided that the competition will be held fully online using Google Meet.
Because of the virtual nature, it has been determined by the National Ocean Science Bowl office that the best way to ensure fair play is that we do not have direct head-to-head matches. This means that each team will be competing alone in a call with just the officials and the coach. The competition will have 2hr time blocks where between 7 and 9 Google Meet calls will run concurrently.
To do this we need many volunteers to fill the roles of moderator, timekeeper, scorekeeper, and judge. Please click on the VOLUNTEER link above if you are interested in participating.
The Shore Bowl is an exciting quiz-style competition for high school students (Grades 9-12) in NJ and Eastern PA that focuses on the ocean sciences, including biology, chemistry, physics and geology. We’re one of 25 regional competitions of the National Ocean Sciences Bowl (NOSB) hosted around the country each year. The winning team will represent our region at the NOSB finals. Prizes are awarded to the top teams at both the regional and national levels.
The NOSB theme for 2021 is not yet announced. Study resources for the theme will available at the NOSB web site.
