Education and Outreach
We make ocean science fun and easy to learn and teach.
We train teachers and facilitators to make ocean science exciting and relevant to their students and trainees. We also show young people about their local marine life, why it is important and how to take care of it.
EDGE CORAL CAMP
EDEGE Coral Camp is an after-school program (weekend class) for elementary students to improve their proficiency in Science, Math and English. It offers engaging, activity-based lessons about marine biodiversity that focus on the importance of EDGE corals and coral reefs in general. It is an outdoor activity mixing interactive classroom activities and presentations with real ocean exploration. Over the months, more than one hundred local children have been taught to explore their beautiful underwater backyards, some of them for the first time. Support from the Zoological Society of London was instrumental in getting the camp off to a running start.
MPA Module for Teachers
MPA for Teachers is a resource for school teachers in coastal areas designed to make environmental science fun and easy to learn, developed by Grace Quiton-Domingo in partnership with School of the SEA. It offers creative yet practical ways to illustrate basic ecological principles using marine protected areas as a teaching tool and venue for discovery and learning. The module contains easy-to-do activities, collaborative exercises and games that can quickly engage students within and outside the classroom.
