The Great Lakes Bowl - Ann Arbor 2-4-12

ISEA's Tom Kelly assisted with the Great Lakes Science Bowl on Saturday.  High School teams from Michigan competed in very tough competition for a chance to go to the National Ocean Science Bowl. The Great Lakes Science Bowl was held at the S. T. Dana Building, home of the School of Natural Resources and Environment.

The NOSB is a nationwide academic competition among teams of high school students. Regional competitions are held around the U.S. in February and March with the final National Competition held in April. The NOSB tests students' math and science skills as applied to topics on ocean (and Great Lakes) biology, chemistry, geology, physics, technology, history, and economics. Information about NOSB is available online to help students and teachers prepare for the competition: http://www.nosb.org/
The Dexter High School team - Winners of this year's Great Lakes Science Bowl

Green Hills High School Team - 2nd Place at GLSB
ISEA awarded the top two teams (Dexter High School & Greenhills High School of Ann Arbor) trips aboard the schooner Inland Seas to study limnology of the Great Lakes.  All other teams were offered ISEA scholarships through a grant received from the Herbert and Grace Dow Foundation. We hope to have all competing Michigan teams sailing aboard the Schoolship this year!   And congratulations to the winners and all competitors in this years Bowl.
