Maui High School Heads to National Ocean Sciences Bowl

·By civilbeat

A five-student team from Maui High School took first place in last Saturday’s Hawaii regional National Ocean Sciences Bowl — a.k.a. the “Aloha Bowl.”

The students in April will head to Milwaukee, Wis. to represent Hawaii in the 16th annual National Ocean Sciences Bowl, according to a University of Hawaii press release. 

The competition tests students on their knowledge of the marine sciences, including biology, chemistry, physics, geology, marine policy and social sciences. 

This year marks Maui High’s sixth win out of 11 total years, making the school the state’s reigning champ. Of
