The National Ocean Sciences Bowl (NOSB) is a team competition very similar to Science Bowl, with the exception that questions in NOSB are based on marine sciences, including biology, chemistry, physics, geology, geography, social science, and technology. The competition style is split into both buzzer and written portions. In buzzer rounds, the first competitor to press his or her buzzer earns the right to answer the question. The written portions allot a period of time for team members to consult and write down responses to questions.
The regional Sea Lion Bowl competition for this year will be held on February 28th, 2015, at Stanford University’s School of Earth Sciences. 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 NOSB from Lynbrook.
