Manteo High School’s Ocean Science Bowl Club team increased its collective knowledge recently, when students attended a tutoring session at Jennette’s Pier. Dave Sybert, education associate for UNC’s Coastal Studies Institute, first gave a presentation on ocean research, followed by a quiz by pier Education Coordinator Christin Brown, using the Ocean Science Bowl format. Seated from left is sophomore team members Paige Twyne and Asher Daniels. Standing from left is junior Shelby Lanier and senior Carson Davis. The squad will head to East Carolina University in Greenville to compete against other high school teams in March. Science teachers Pat Holland and Lisa Serfling coach the students. “We did really well last year. It’s great for the kids to get into the university setting,” Holland said. Senior Jose Garcia is the team’s alternate.
