An introduction to Oceanography
Discover Oceanography


These high-quality activities and web pages will support your teaching before and after your boat trip. Our aim is to help boost marine Science education in the classroom. These materials have been developed by a local teacher, Gemma Hortop, at Hounsdown School and re-purposed for an online environment by the University’s Institute for Learning, Innovation and Development (ILIaD). We have tried to tie the topic in with the Current national curriculum (KS3).

Complete information about Discover Oceanography, the south coast’s premier oceanographic outreach activity, can be found on the main website.
