Deep Blue Oceans

Deep Blue Oceans

Science of the Deep Blue!

Dive into the science of the sea as we explore the physical factors that determine life underwater and along our coastlines.

  • Learn about what drives ocean acidification and its effect on coral.
  • How do heat and salt drive our ocean currents?
  • How does pressure change underwater and what does this mean for marine life as well as scuba divers?
  • Why do light wavelengths & intensity change as you go deeper and what does this mean for organisms?
  • How do whales and dolphins use echolocation to locate prey?
  • Which technologies are being used in current ocean research?
  • … and more!
This show was specially designed for National Science Week 2020 ‘Deep Blue: innovations for the future of our oceans.’

Available as an incursion within Australia or as a video conference to any school around the globe!
