Mill Bay, BC. - Ocean Networks Canada (ONC), an initiative of the University of Victoria, today launches a pilot ocean science educational program at Brentwood College School to complement its growing network of community observatories program which saw its prototype installed off the school dock two years ago, in the waters of Mill Bay, BC.
“Ocean Sense” is a free, novel online educational program based on analyzing, understanding and sharing ocean data collected by the observatories.
“At ONC we believe it’s crucial that global citizens develop an ocean sense; an understanding that the health of the ocean reflects the health of the planet. We’re excited to be launching this program in partnership with Brentwood College School, where teachers and students have the ocean close by and are enthusiastic about this project and its potential.”
