Our Ocean Space

ADD A NEW PROJECT!

Welcome to OUR OCEAN SPACE, a web-based network for exchange of projects, art, audio-visual presentations, and other imaginative formats, created and uploaded by young Citizens of the Ocean to share with their counterparts worldwide. Teachers and students are invited to share their ocean-related projects with other classrooms, linking together young people through their understanding and interpretation of ocean systems.
Create and account/log in to submit projects and presentations in PowerPoint format, upload images to photo galleries, and link to video projects on YouTube. Each project will be marked as a DRAFT and will be posted to the site once it is reviewed by the W2O Editor for appropriate content. It is the responsibility of those submitting material to address copyright clearance for photographs, music, and other literary and graphic materials.

Would you like to contribute to our growing community of projects? Once you have an account with World Ocean Observatory, you can then add as many ocean-related projects as you'd like.

The environment and our planet’s fragile eco-system, is continually under attack from man. The world is presently experiencing considerable changes in climatic behavior and yet there seems no end to the route of destruction that man has chosen. Of great concern is the continual exploitation and pollution of our oceans- attributed directly to Man’s ignorance of the oceans! We have more knowledge about outer space than our oceans!

Science has benefited immensely from technological advances in the last few decades, but one research tool that many scientists would argue need not be improved is the handwritten field notebook. Ocean and You brings science, education and storytelling to your school, camp or club. They offer marine and environmental education through hands-on science, lectures and demos, and creative...

Can a collaborative animation practice expand perceptions of our place within the global ecosystem? This is the research question of the Living Data project. Living Data builds on the Antarctic Animation project that evolved through a collaborative animation practice. Living Data similarly evolves, through mutually beneficial (symbiotic) relationships that develop with scientists and other artists. Collaborators share data and iconography for the purpose of expanding understanding our place...

We are the 5th grade class of Mount Madonna School. This year we are doing a project to help the environment. We have chosen to focus on California Sea Otters. As a part of this project, we are making a DVD to educate people about sea otters and how our actions affect them. In addition, we are creating educational materials to be posted on a few websites. We are also creating picture books for our little kindergarten buddies that teach them about the ocean. Lastly, we organized Worldwide Waste...
