2015 Blue Heron Bowl
The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is hosting the 2015 Blue Heron Bowl in Chapel Hill, NC. The bowl will be held on Saturday, February 7, 2015 (note the CHANGE). More details to follow!
The Blue Heron Bowl is a regional marine science quiz bowl. Two teams, each composed of 4 students and 1 alternate, square off against each other to answer questions related to marine science. Many of these students are coached by a marine science or general science teacher that sponsors their training. The bowl, itself consists of a set of matches. Each match consists 6 minutes of toss-up and bonus questions, followed by 2 team challenge questions, and ending with a final 6 minutes of toss-up and bonus questions. During the 2013 Blue Heron Bowl, teams will participate in 3 round-robin sessions that provide the seeding for the double elimination round after lunch.
Winners of the North Carolina regional bowl, the Blue Heron Bowl, will be sent to the National competition in April. This year, the competition will be held in Mississippi! Our North Carolina team will face-off against 24 other teams over 2 days! The National Ocean Sciences Bowl provides training resources and sample questions.
