Education + Outreach

Ohio Ocean Foundation’s educators have years of experience teaching thousands of students around the country about how the ocean impacts human health. In Ohio, specifically, our educators have spoken to over 2,400 students from elementary school through college since the Ohio Ocean Foundation began in early 2018. Focused on positivity, all presentations leave students feeling empowered to make a difference and with new skills to begin saving our oceans. 

Through Ohio Ocean Foundation’s connections with the Stark County Educational Services Center and other public and private school teachers throughout Stark County, Ohio Ocean Foundation schedules in-class presentations for all ages of students from kindergarten through college level. When in the classroom, Ohio Ocean Foundation provides students with an interactive presentation about plastic pollution, algal blooms, and energy freedom and how these issues impact Ohio’s ecosystems and economy as well as the health of its residents. 

"I just wanted to thank you again for such a wonderful presentation! It was VERY informative and inspiring. The girls were engaged and interested the whole time. I can tell it had an impact on them based on the conversations I had with them during our clean-up."
