Abstract : The NOSB is an academic competition to engage students in ocean science as part of an enhanced STEM education. The NOSB consists, annually, of 25 regional competitions and one National Finals Competition. In 2014, 329 teams (approximately 1,645 students) from 34 states and the District of Columbia participated in the regional competitions.

The Finals were held May 1-4, 2014 in Seattle, WA with a theme of ocean acidification. A longitudinal study and annual surveys demonstrate program impact.
