Two teams of students from Petersburg High School are preparing for the Tsunami Bowl, an annual statewide competition focusing on ocean sciences next month. The competition requires completion of a research paper, oral presentation and the teams also compete against other schools in a quiz match. Petersburg’s teams are polishing up presentations on different topics centering around this year’s theme of estuaries.
Joe Viechnicki spoke with a few of the students, starting off with junior Cole Somerville, who explained about his team’s name.
