Ocean School’s overarching goal is simple: to create a generation of ocean-literate citizens. A generation who will better understand our impact on the ocean and the ocean’s impact on us. Dr. Boris Worm (Dalhousie University) and producer Paul McNeill (National Film Board), the initiators of the project, looked out at the ocean in Duncan’s Cove, Nova Scotia, and dreamt of a dynamic educational experience that would inspire young minds and transform their relationship with the ocean and its many inhabitants. The Ocean School team works at the intersection of science, education and storytelling. Given the calibre of the people involved and the strength of their commitment, that intersection is a pretty exciting place to be. A sincere thanks to all involved...our journey is just beginning!
