Digital Ocean School

BRINGING OCEAN SCHOOL TO YOUR DOORSTEP

Normally each year we take a selection of school groups to the greatest classroom on Earth; the beach!

This year we decided to bring Ocean School to you instead.

From April to July we hosted a series of live lessons on our Facebook and Instagram pages and created new resources every week to accompany the lessons.

We wanted to make sure that you could watch these lessons at any time so we’ve saved everything here for you. Just scroll down and dive into Digital Ocean School.
