Ocean Sense Program
Discovering the ocean through science, Indigenous Knowledge and data exploration.

Ocean Sense is a novel education program that invites communities, educators, and students to discover the ocean through multiple ways of knowing – ocean science, Indigenous knowledge, and data exploration. The core modules, co-created by Ocean Networks Canada and Indigenous community partners, provide curriculum-aligned, experiential learning for middle and high school students. The supplementary materials, resources, and activities are a diverse, inclusive, and accessible collection of formal and informal ocean learning opportunities.

Ocean Sense is funded by the Canada Foundation for Innovation and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council PromoScience program.
