Project Oceanography is a live television program designed for middle school science students. Each week during the school year, students can learn about a variety of ocean science topics. Some of the topics covered include: Antarctic oceanography, marine debris, tsunamis, plankton, hydrodynamic flow through seagrass beds, channel islands, kelp forests, cold seeps, pollution, and water quality. Programs are taught by real scientists and feature a call-in question and answer session at the end of each lesson. There are also Teacher Packets that give information on program topics, activities, pages for students' individual use, and vocabulary and reference lists to enhance student understanding.
