Technology, conservation, and research are intertwined in all Teens4Oceans projects. We are devoted to helping teens develop technology and engineering skills through webcam and buoy projects, as well as supporting research and conservation through strong student-researcher partnerships, citizen science involvement and field research experiences.
Teens4Oceans has installed underwater camera systems in several unique marine ecosystems. We bring students and engineers together to design, prototype and build new systems for deployment. The goal is to install science nodes around the world that will give students virtual experiences, remote data collection opportunities, and allow them to realize the importance of our ocean.
Students can gain invaluable hands-on experience with CAD software modeling, marine policy, scientific procedure, electrical engineering, software development, environmental and mechanical engineering, network systems, robotics, intellectual property pursuit, and solar and wind power engineering. Students involved in technology have the opportunity to collaborate with scientists, engineers and peers to successfully complete each project.
Underwater webcam systems present a unique experience for students across the globe by affording free, remote research in a variety of marine ecosystems. With the multitude of data available for students to analyze and correlate, this is a great way to get them involved in scientific processes while providing a valuable inquiry-based learning experience.
