The Sea Lion Bowl is one of 25 regional ocean science competitions, the winners of which compete in the National Ocean Sciences Bowl. The Sea Lion Bowl has been hosted by the California State University, Monterey Bay College of Science since 2017. While typically CSUMB hosts between 150-200 high school students and their coaches at an all day in-person event, this year the entire bowl will be held virtually on February 6, 2021. Teams of students from high schools across Northern California will compete in the quiz show-like competition. The students will answer marine science questions in the fields of Biology, Geology, Chemistry, Geography, Marine-Policy, Oceanography, and Ocean Technology on the level of undergraduate marine science majors.
Moss Landing Marine Laboratories is honored to contribute to this event and help promote the importance of STEM to high school students. Several MLML students will be volunteering at the bowl and we will also be hosting a virtual booth featuring information about our research and educational opportunities.
