Grantee Highlight (2017) – Petersburg City School District

Grant funding from the Petersburg Community Foundation has provided the opportunity for the National Ocean Science Bowl (NOSB) to work with oceanographic equipment as part of their learning about the global marine environment. The team, as well as other high school students, will use the equipment to collect water samples below the surface and measure turbidity. This will allow high school students with an interest in marine science to have an enhanced understanding of marine sciences and future career opportunities within marine science.
