Ocean Sciences Quiz
Test your knowledge of ocean sciences by playing the new Ocean Sciences Quiz!
The National Ocean Sciences Bowl has been working with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Sea Grant College Program to develop an online game to promote ocean literacy and engage students, teachers, and teams worldwide. The first phase (single-player) of the Ocean Sciences Quiz (OSQ) is now available to play! The multi-player mode, as well as other exciting features, will be available later this spring.
To encourage NOSB students, as well as any high school student interested in ocean sciences, to remain involved with the OSQ, a contest is being held during the month of February to encourage quality question writing. Please help build the question base for this new online game with your own questions. All questions will be vetted by a team of marine science professionals.
To learn more about the contest and prizes, please visit the OSQ Question Writing Contest page or click the floating "message in a bottle" on the front page.
The contest is open only to high school students, but anyone can submit questions. Contest winners will be notified in May 2012.
