The National Ocean Sciences Bowl (OSB) is a team competition very similar to Science Bowl. It is also speed-based; the first competitor to press his or her buzzer earns the right to answer the question. The Regional competition will be held on March 3rd, 2012, and the National event will be in April. This will be a new competition at Lynbrook for the 2011-2012 school year.
In contrast to Science Bowl, however, questions in OSB are more based on marine sciences, which synthesizes material from biology, chemistry, geology, geography, social science, technology, and physics.
Because Lynbrook is only allowed to send 1 team of 5 people, tryouts will be held to determine the team. Only students who are not on Science Bowl Team A or Team B are eligible to participle in OSB from Lynbrook.
More information about OSB can be found on their website.
Note: Due to funding issues, this contest may or may not take place this year.
