Faculty and graduate students volunteer for the 21st annual Quahog Bowl

Faculty and graduate students volunteer for the 21st annual Quahog Bowl.  Faculty and students from the Department of Marine Sciences served as science judges, science graders, and score keepers for the annual Quahog Bowl held on UConn’s Avery Point campus.  Fifteen high-school teams competed in the event which is a regional competition of the National Ocean Sciences Bowl. The competition was won by Ledyard High School of Connecticut, but all teams had a fun and educational day. https://seagrant.uconn.edu/2018/01/18/15-teams-from-ct-ri-to-compete-in-21st-annual-quahog-bowl/
