About the Oceanscape Network
Through the Oceanscape Network website, teachers and youth will have the
chance to experience the Oregon coast in three unique ways:
EXPLORE: From north to south and top to bottom, users can navigate the coast based on geographical locations, historical sites, major landforms and ecosystems. The site will encompass both
aquatic and terrestrial environments from the ocean floor to the top of
the Coast Mountain Range.
EXPERIENCE: Particularly unique to the Oceanscape Network will be the
features which motivate young visitors to experience the coast and the great outdoors firsthand. Features will offer fun, practical and engaging ideas
on how to actively enjoy nature – from taking great wildlife photos, to learning
how to surf, to hiking the best nature trails!
EDUCATE: This part of the website is designed specifically for Oregon teachers and students and will offer guided projects on scientific inquiry. A sophisticated infrastructure will allow teachers to create user accounts and student communities, to supervise the progress of their students’ inquiry-based projects, and to access classroom resources ranging from videos to lesson plans.
