- For youth grades 2-6: Have you ever caught yourself wondering how deep the ocean really was? You can now explore it for yourself with our Actua at Home activity developed in partnership with Oceans Network Canada! (p.12)
- For youth grades 3-9: It’s time to dive into the water with our network member SuperNOVA at Dalhousie University and Polaris, their remotely operated underwater vehicle (ROV). Watch the ROV footage from Polaris, and use SuperNOVA’s identification guides to help collect data on the seaweed and animal species found in different aquatic habitats.
- For youth grades 3 and up: Explore the ocean even further with code.org’s ocean-themed activity that teaches about life under the sea while also training a machine learning model and developing skills in artificial intelligence (AI)!
- For youth grades 4 and up: Exploring the ocean is great but what about the water itself? Our network member X-Chem at St. Francis Xavier University has recorded a video to tell you all about water’s amazing properties.
