X-Oceans Outreach

 

X-Oceans Outreach provides hands-on activities and workshops to promote ocean sciences, preservation and marine biodiversity to rural communities, schools, summer camps and youth organizations. Our goal is to enhance ocean literacy and ocean stewardship to youth grades K-12 through STEM and experiential learning, in Northeastern Nova Scotia.

Le programme de sensibilisation X-Oceans fournit des activités et des ateliers aux écoles et régions rurales afin de promouvoir les sciences océaniques, la biodiversité et la préservation des océans. Notre but est d'améliorer l'alphabétisation et l'intendance océanique des jeunes de la M-12 année à travers les STIM et apprentissage experientiel dans le nord-est de la Nouvelle-Écosse.

“Making information about Canada’s oceans accessible to Canadians, regardless of where they live or how young they are, is foundational to protecting ocean resources now and for future generations. Fisheries and Oceans Canada is pleased to partner with StFX and the X-Oceans program with this innovative educational curriculum that will inspire wonder and curiosity in Nova Scotia youth.” 
- Honourable Joyce Murray, Minister of Fisheries, Oceans and the Canadian Coast Guard.
