Chesapeake Bay Bowl

Jan. 22, 2014--The Chesapeake Bay Bowl will test high school students’ knowledge of the ocean on Saturday, Feb. 1, hosted by Delaware Sea Grant at the University of Delaware’s Hugh R. Sharp Campus in Lewes, Del.

Twelve teams will answer challenging questions about the marine environment, with topics that can range anywhere from whale ecology to the chemistry of seawater.

High school students from Delaware, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C. will participate. Most have taken high school courses in marine science and biology and show promise in entering scientific careers.

“These students have worked very hard,” said event organizer Chris Petrone, marine education specialist with Delaware Sea Grant. “They’re sharp.”
