From Ocean Floor to Mountain Summit
A comprehensive look for teenagers at the natural history of the Oregon Coast.
Imagine yourself standing on the edge of a tall rocky cliff overlooking the raging waters of the Pacific Ocean. So many thoughts and feelings can run through you when encountering something as massive and powerful as the ocean. It has inspired myth, legend, adventure and discovery— and we still know less about it than any other major ecosystem on Earth.
Explore From Anywhere
Formally launching in Summer 2013, the Oceanscape Network will offer a comprehensive look at the natural history of the Oregon Coast and the world’s oceans. Created by the Oregon Coast Aquarium, one of the Oregon’s leading organizations in ocean education and stewardship, the Oceanscape Network will let you explore these amazing ecosystems no matter where you live.
You don’t have to live near the coast to be fascinated by the oceans or the coast. Maybe you’ve wondered what kind of animals live under those crashing waves. Or how tsunamis are formed. Or what it’s like to surf.
Whatever your fascination, the Oceanscape Network promises to have something for you.
Build Student Communities
The Oceanscape Network will give you the opportunity to explore nature, learn about animals and build your science skills. But it will also help you in school!
One of the major features of the website will offer your teachers free resources and projects on scientific inquiry. A teacher can create student communities and help supervise your progress through inquiry-based projects focused on the oceans and coastal environments.
If you live in Oregon, this is especially important because you can use this tool to complete your science requirements for high school graduation. (Make sure you tell your teachers to learn more about Oceanscape Network)
