After Dana Hills High School's Ocean Sciences team smashed their competition in La Jolla in February, the five students are heading to the 16th annual National Ocean Sciences Bowl.
Dana Hills competed Feb. 23 to win the Grunion Bowl, a regional ocean science academic competition of the National Ocean Sciences Bowl, according to a release from the organization.
The Grunion Bowl was held at Scripps Institution of Oceanography in La Jolla.
"Eighteen teams with four or five students on each team participated in this year’s Grunion Bowl, which consisted of buzzer-style, multiple-choice questions and open-ended, team-challenge questions," the release states.
Dana Hills now moves on to face 24 other regional champions in the 16th Annual National Ocean Sciences Bowl at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee April 18-21.
“Congratulations to all the students participating in the 2013 NOSB regional competitions as they contribute so much to this important program in the field of ocean science,” Robert B. Gagosian, president & CEO of the Consortium for Ocean Leadership, said in a release.
“These scholars are the future stewards of our ocean, and I know this experience encourages them to continue to learn how the ocean works and how to wisely use our ocean resources for generations to come.”
