The National Ocean Sciences Bowl, coordinated by the Consortium for Ocean Leadership, is in many ways similar to the National Science Bowl but focuses specifically on ocean-related topics. The competition is comprised of three elements: a round robin competition, critical-thinking-based team challenge questions, and a double elimination competition. Student teams compete nationwide, answering questions about biology, chemistry, geology and physics of the oceans, as well as navigation, geography and related history and literature.
