Digital Earth Academy: Oceans

Program Description

Dive beneath the oceans, the least well-known part of our planet. Examine the geology of the ocean floors, and learn how they shape our world via plate tectonics. We’ll see the largest reefs and the smallest atolls, and discover the impacts of climate change on ocean life. Join Museum experts on a tour of the mysterious deep, guided by your questions and observations. 

Digital Earth Academy is a new edition of the acclaimed Digital Earth series produced especially for students. Each month, we examine a different aspect of our dynamic planet: landscapes and landforms, human impacts and achievements, and much more. With stunning visualizations, interactive polls, and real-time Q&A, students will make observations, comparisons and connections and gain a new perspective of the Earth.
