Our Mission

TO PROMOTE STEWARDSHIP of the ocean in school children through increased awareness and education. We operate on the belief that we need to teach beyond the test, and incorporate curriculum standards into real world examples and hands-on activities to add meaning and spark children's interest in STEAM education.

Our goal is to provide students access to the ocean sciences no matter where they live, or what their socio-economic status. We believe that knowledge, passion, and curiosity are the most powerful tools we can provide our next generation in order to preserve our planet's greatest resource, the Ocean.

Inquiry-based learning is very important. You need to let kids ask questions and use their imaginations to think about what they are seeing. Really, that’s what being a scientist is all about.

-Dr. Leslie Smith, Founder, Executive Director
