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.

All
Marine Life, Pollution, Water Quality
the NOAA Marine Debris Program
Honolulu, HI
The artwork featured here (and in the 2011 Marine Debris Planner) are all original and created by students from across the United States in grades K through 8. Students were asked to answer two simple questions: How does marine debris impact you? What are you doing about it? Winners were chosen based on creativity, artistic presentation, relevancy to the theme, and how thoroughly students answered the two questions.

Maritime Plymouth
Wembury Point, Plymouth, United Kingdom
Maritime Plymouth has created this presentation, "Beach Litter," to initiate classroom conversations about maritime careers. This is an EU funded project that has been done with two schools thus far and another in development.
Marine Life, Natural Disaster, Water Quality
Mountain Brook Elementary
Mountain Brook, Alabama
4th
This experiment examined the oil at the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico and the effectiveness of dispersants to break up the oil. Students created a simulated oil plume using cooking oil and simulated a dispersing agent using mustard.

Mountain Brook Elementary
Alabama
Lessons appropriate for grades 5-12
The purpose of the experiment was to determine if and how microbes eat oil, which the class was able to do with quantifiable results. Through the experiment the students also learned about the effects on the food chain from vast quantities of oil on the ocean floor.
Careers, Oceanography, Robotics
Mountain Brook Elementary
Alabama
Lessons appropriate for grades 5-12
This lesson was developed by an educator who spent the summer of 2010 with NOAA in the Gulf of Mexico working as a Teacher at Sea. This "Robotics & Careers in Ocean Sciences" and other lessons like it were developed for her classrooms (grades 5-12).
