The Learning and Engagement team works to develop educational resources about ocean science for students, educators, and the public. The video, photos, audio, and oceanographic sensor data collected by Ocean Networks Canada are valuable learning tools that can be used for classroom activities and labs at the primary, secondary, and post-secondary levels. One of our highlighted projects is Ocean Alive, whose television episodes and associated classroom resources promote ocean literacy, and aim to educate students, and the broader public, about ocean science and the research being facilitated by Ocean Networks Canada.
