Sharing our events, and other ocean professional development opportunities, from around Monterey Bay and beyond.


Regional Events & Workshops

2020 Sea Lion Bowl
National Ocean Science Bowl
CSU Monterey Bay
Sat, Feb 1, 2020

The National Ocean Sciences Bowl is an academic competition and program that addresses a national gap in environmental and earth sciences in public education by introducing high school students to and engaging them in ocean science, preparing them for ocean science-related and other STEM careers, and helping them become knowledgeable citizens and environmental stewards. The Sea Lion Bowl is the regional competition in Northern and Central California. Teams of high school students study to understand how the ocean works and the human connections to the oceans. At the competition, they are able to show off their knowledge and depth of understanding through various question types. Volunteer signups will be open in November. More info here.
