Wisconsin Team Wins National Ocean Sciences Bowl in Continuing Streak
(From University of Wisconsin Sea Grant) – Eleven years ago, Paul Herder received a postcard from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee promoting the National Ocean Science Bowl competition. Herder, at the time an Earth science teacher in Marshfield, Wis., said he got “cranked up” about the topics involved in the event (meteorology, geology, oceanography, etc.) and it appealed to his competitive nature. This perfect combination led to Herder’s long-term involvement with the NOSB and a four-year winning reign for Marshfield High School, in addition to inspiring several careers in aquatic and marine science along the way.
