ocean school advancing ocean literacy as part of DFO Science Enterprise Centres
We are pleased to announce a recent evolution in Ocean School's ongoing partnership with the Canadian Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO). The Honourable Dominic LeBlanc, Minister of Fisheries, Oceans and the Canadian Coast Guard, has announced that DFO will work with the Canadian Science and Technology Museum and Ocean School to develop public interpretive spaces and educational programming for the newly announced Atlantic Science Enterprise Centre in Moncton, NB and the Pacific Science Enterprise Centre in Vancouver, BC. The partnership will also support the development and production of Ocean School educational content for distribution online and in classrooms across the country.
As a first step to this partnership, the Minister announced a $1 million collaborative agreement to support the initial planning for the interpretive spaces, and production of the first round of Ocean School content for the project. Stay tuned for updates of our first expeditions!
