Our Ocean Space


Welcome to OUR OCEAN SPACE, a web-based network for exchange of projects, art, audio-visual presentations, and other imaginative formats, created and uploaded by young Citizens of the Ocean to share with their counterparts worldwide. Teachers and students are invited to share their ocean-related projects with other classrooms, linking together young people through their understanding and interpretation of ocean systems.
Create and account/log in to submit projects and presentations in PowerPoint format, upload images to photo galleries, and link to video projects on YouTube. Each project will be marked as a DRAFT and will be posted to the site once it is reviewed by the W2O Editor for appropriate content. It is the responsibility of those submitting material to address copyright clearance for photographs, music, and other literary and graphic materials.

Would you like to contribute to our growing community of projects? Once you have an account with World Ocean Observatory, you can then add as many ocean-related projects as you'd like.

Research, Water Quality
Deep Creek Middle School and Blue Hill Consolidated School
Eleuthera, Bahamas and Blue Hill, Maine
Abby Ramnarine from Deep Middle School in Eleuthera, Bahamas and Erin Dooley from Blue Hill Consolidated School in Blue Hill, Maine both studied water quality in their small, coastal towns. Although these students live nearly 1,500 miles apart, their findings were remarkably similar. Both students tested water for coliform bacteria, dissolved oxygen, biochemical oxygen demand, nitrate, pH, phosphate, salinity and turbidity. Their results indicated good water quality at both locations.

During April and May of 2018, the 8th graders of BHCS tested the water quality of three different sites on the Bagaduce Watershed in downeast Maine. On April 30 the class tested the water of Snow Natural Area. On May 1 they visited Ferry Landing and on May 9 they water tested at Sherm Perkins Memorial Park. At each of these sites they conducted 8 different water tests: temperature; dissolved oxygen; coliform bacteria; biochemical oxygen demand; pH; turbidity; phosphate; and nitrate.

The environment and our planet’s fragile eco-system, is continually under attack from man. The world is presently experiencing considerable changes in climatic behavior and yet there seems no end to the route of destruction that man has chosen. Of great concern is the continual exploitation and pollution of our oceans- attributed directly to Man’s ignorance of the oceans! We have more knowledge about outer space than our oceans!
