Welcome to the Ocean Tracks Development Site!

Connecting Students with Scientific Data

Current Status


Cynthia 1 smThe Ocean Tracks web interface has been created using a Phase 1 grant from the National Science Foundation.  It was pilot tested with high school students in four classrooms during the spring and fall of 2013. Currently, data from these pilot tests are being analyzed and what we learn will be used to make improvements to the interactive map and tools. We’ve applied for additional funding to develop curriculum and other supports with a goal of making Ocean Tracks broadly useful in both high school and college classrooms.
