Ocean Wise launches the new Ocean Wise Sea Dome
The immersive, portable dome is setting off on a fourteen-week tour through Western Canada, celebrating World Ocean Day in Regina
There’s exciting news bubbling up from Ocean Wise’s Education Team!
The brand-new Ocean Wise Sea Dome launched this month, ushering in new climate change and ocean education. The Ocean Wise Sea Dome is a new immersive ocean adventure that brings marine magic to communities everywhere. This portable, inflatable six-metre dome projects 360-degree 4K cinematic footage to highlight show the important connections between ocean health, climate change, and daily life for youth in kindergarten to grade 12.
In addition to the Sea Dome, Ocean Wise Mobile Education Programs feature marine artifacts and hands-on interactive activities. Ocean Wise educators deliver expert level, multi-sensory aquatic programs, based on the Ocean Literacy Framework. This is the next generation of the successful AquaVan program from Ocean Wise Mobile, after the AquaVan officially “retired” in 2021.
With the goal to encourage passion and care of our oceans and waterways, Ocean Wise strives to create a lasting connection for young people to our oceans and aquatic habitats by encouraging direct conservation action
The Ocean Wise Sea Dome departed on May 27 for a fourteen-week tour through Western Canada with stops across British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan. The dome will be in Regina on World Ocean Day, bringing the ocean to the doorstep of youth in the prairies.
