The leading innovator in online marine science education.
Ocean First Education brings the sea to life through high-quality, innovative marine science education and create lifelong students and stewards of the ocean.
At Ocean First Education, we develop and provide innovative and dynamic online marine science courses for middle school through adult learners. Our team of educators, scientists, and eLearning experts are committed to increasing awareness of marine environments and engaging students through interactive experiences. We are grounded in our mission to inspire students, teachers, and the community to become stewards of the sea. Currently, we have developed 16 short courses and a comprehensive Marine Science 101 course. We provide professional development for teachers and engage in education outreach in schools and the community. We also support early-career scientists and will begin our own research projects within the next year.
The Ocean First family is passionate about increasing ocean awareness and literacy and providing ways for our community to become impassioned stewards for the marine environment. Our sister organization, Ocean First Institute, helps us educate, empower, and involve our communities to make a difference.
