Ocean School bringing virtual underwater exploration into classrooms
Middle-school students in Nova Scotia will be diving into the world’s underwater ecosystems through a new interactive program.
Ocean School, developed by Dalhousie University and the National Film Board, combines video footage with information provided by marine scientists.
“We’re teaching science content in a new way,” said the program’s science leader, Boris Worm. “We are both storytellers but we tell a different stories. So it’s interesting to come together and do something for the next generation.”
