Students from Canyon Crest Academy (CCA) recently won a regional ocean science academic competition, the Garibaldi Bowl, which is part of the National Ocean Sciences Bowl (NOSB). The competition tests students’ knowledge of ocean science disciplines through quick multiple-choice questions and open-ended team challenge questions. The CCA team includes Allen Huang, Catherine Zhang, Martin Holmes, Mason Holmes, Cynthia Chen, and coach Mary Holmes. The team will advance with other regional winners to the 22nd Annual NOSB Finals Competition in Washington, D.C. from April 11 through 14.

NOSB is an academic corporation 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.
