UDaily: Delaware Sea Grant promotes interest in marine science among high schoolers

Budding marine scientists demonstrated an ocean of knowledge at the annual Chesapeake Bay Bowl in Lewes, Del., on Feb. 1, vying for a spot at the national competition in Seattle this spring. Held at the University of Delaware's Hugh R. Sharp Campus, the regional quiz bowl brought together 60 top science students from 12 high schools in Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C. Students answered questions spanning oceanography, geology, biology, geography, social science, marine policy and chemistry. Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology in Alexandria, Va., took first place after an intense day of tackling multiple choice, short answer and written questions in rapid response.
