High school students, including those from Bainbridge High School, will compete in the 15th annual Orca Bowl from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. March 3 at University of Washington’s Fishery Sciences Building, 1122 NE Boat St., Seattle.
The rapid-fire academic competition attracts teams from across the state to answer challenging questions about the biology, chemistry, geology, physics, history and economics of the ocean.
The winning team will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to Baltimore, Md., in April to compete in the National Ocean Sciences Bowl. Competitors can also qualify for scholarships and internships.
The event is hosted by the University of Washington College of the Environment and Washington Sea Grant.
