Catalina Island is 20 miles from Los Angeles. The University of Southern California has a center of marine science there. In summer, middle and high school kids come to the center for one week.  The kids learn about the island and do research.
The Consortium for Ocean Leadership, representing leading oceanographic institutions universities and aquaria, manages a national academic competition for high schools on topics related to the study of the oceans — the National Ocean Sciences Bowl® (NOSB). Find out how your school can join more than 30 others and compete in NOSB regional and national competitions .

There was a funny girl, she had a funny name
She got it from her pappy just the same, same, same.
Catalina Madalina, Hoopin Stina, Walla dina [or Ooka Sonna Donna Wanna]
Oaka, Poka, Loka was her name.

She had two hairs on the top of her head
One was alive and the other was dead.
Catalina Madalina, Hoopin Stina, Walla dina
Oaka, Poka, Loka was her name.

She had two eyes in the front of her head
One was green and the other was red.
Catalina Madalina, Hoopin Stina, Walla dina
Oaka, Poka, Loka was her name.

She had two teeth in the front of her mouth
One pointed north and the other pointed south.
Catalina Madalina, Hoopin Stina, Walla dina
Oaka, Poka, Loka was her name.

She had two lips, two beautiful lips,
Shaped just like two battleships.
Catalina Madalina, Hoopin Stina, Walla dina
Oaka, Poka, Loka was her name.

Her nose was so long that when she sneezed
It got caught in between her knees.
Catalina Madalina, Hoopin Stina, Walla dina
Oaka, Poka, Loka was her name.

Her ears stuck out like the sails of a boat
Her Adam’s apple wandered up and down her throat.
Catalina Madalina, Hoopin Stina, Walla dina
Oaka, Poka, Loka was her name.

She loved to polish her fingernails
She bought her polish in ten gallon pails.
Catalina Madalina, Hoopin Stina, Walla dina
Oaka, Poka, Loka was her name.

The language that she spoke was an awful joke
Her head was made out of solid oak
Catalina Madalina, Hoopin Stina, Walla dina
Oaka, Poka, Loka was her name.

Her feet were flat as bathroom mats
I forgot to ask how they got like that.
Catalina Madalina, Hoopin Stina, Walla dina
Oaka, Poka, Loka was her name.

A ten ton truck hit our Madaline
That was the end of that machine.
Catalina Madalina, Hoopin Stina, Walla dina
Oaka, Poka, Loka was her name.
