Poster Information
Abstract: Ocean Networks Canada (ONC) operates various ocean observatory systems and connects with existing global technology to engage many different audiences with real-time data coming from the deep-sea. This authentic data isn’t just used by scientists; it is readily used and is an ideal learning platform for students and educators. ONC’s new bank of educational resources is now available on our website. These lessons, labs, and assignments have been designed to integrate directly into university and secondary school courses. They can be easily downloaded and readily implemented. Furthermore, undergraduate students can explore real-time ocean data outside their prescribed classes by attending ONC’s unique statistical workshops. ONC is also helping to expose students to engineering opportunities through UVic’s co-op program. Students are offered exciting hands-on opportunities to build, manipulate, deploy and test deep-sea technology. Students have had extensive projects from developing a mini-observatory in Cambridge Bay, Nunavut, to participating on research expeditions. We believe that by using real-time data in the classroom and offering hands-on experiences, we can inspire the next generation and peak their interest in ocean science and technology. An overview of the observatory systems, the educational resources available, and future developments will be presented.Summary: Ocean Networks Canada (ONC) operates various ocean observatory systems and connects with existing global technology to engage many different audiences with real-time data coming from the deep-sea.
