OCEAN SCHOOL 360˚
a series of immersive VR and 360˚ experiences designed to engage a global audience. Ocean School 360˚ is delivered on head-mounted displays, tablets, smartphones and in VR-enabled web browsers. Users can explore immersive environments to discover a series of augmented reality vignettes that present additional content related to the person, place, creature and issue at hand.
OCEAN SCHOOL HQ
a physical centre for Ocean Education, Research and Public Engagement based at Dalhousie University. Ocean School HQ will host the Ocean School engagement team, a focused group of scientists, communicators, content creators and connectors. The goal is to work with like-minded individuals and organizations to foster an open conversation that begins in classrooms, aquariums or public installations and encourages direct action through a wide network of strategic partnerships with established citizen-science and citizen-engagement programs.
