Journey To The Past

There are many amazing creatures at the bottom of the sea

But there is more than creatures you see

It’s shipwrecks for their beautiful and interesting sites

But they’re in the bottom of the ocean where there is no lights

How will we see them, how will they be found

How will we find them, if they’re on the ocean ground

Underwater drones of course will do

It will record giving information to the marine crew

And with the information, you can do many things

You can make books, poems, and anything else that the info brings

Shipwrecks are things that interest me the most

Maybe one day I will look for these sunken boats.

The ocean, moves ever so slightly but has an impact to all.

So calm

Beautiful

Serene

A life-saver

So large, but so unexpoored

Very welcoming, but distant

The ocean could save us all, it coudl provide us with medicines we need

That is what I would look for

I would look for things to make the world a better place

Poem was made from page 56 of The Outsiders

It was strong

I had to hold my breath

Water

My mind slowly relaxed

I lay there in the water

The moonlight spreading over

I’m gonna look

The Lion City

by Princesa J., 11th grade, Mary Star of the Sea High School

If I had an underwater robot, I would explore several things within the ocean. These things include exploring the Mariana Trench, exploring sea caves, and exploring the ocean floor to create a topographic map of it.

One of the first places I would take my underwater robot is the Mariana Trench due to how unexplored it is. The Mariana Trench is the deepest trench in the world at a whopping 10,984 meters deep located in the Western Pacific Ocean. Although people have been at the bottom of the trench there have been little discoveries made because of the lack of time down there. This lack of time is due to pressure under the water that can make these trips incredibly dangerous. The underwater robot could discover lots of new species of sea creatures that could have many health benefits for humans. For example the horseshoe crab has blood that is used for many medicines within pharmacies.

Two more things I would do if I had an underwater robot is explore sea caves and create a topographic map of the ocean. Although sea caves may not be as extraordinary as the Mariana Trench, they are very interesting and there is always a chance of discovering a new sea creature. However, one thing I wonder about sea caves is how they are formed. Lastly, a topographic map of the ocean floor could be beneficial for many people. Although, this could take years because of the size of the ocean a map like this would be beneficial because it could help us predict tsunamis, tides, and size of waves (these things are based off the shape of the ocean floor). This could make beaches much safer because we will know about these things in advacne and begin to evacuate. Overall, an underwater robot could be very beneficial in many different ways.

Skip a straw – Save a Turtle

Isabel C., 12th grade, Port of Los Angeles High School

The Ocean is not only very pretty bit its a world saver. Here are a few ways the ocean helps us and the Earth.
-Creates oxygen from phytoplankton

-It regulates world climate

-Produces a huge food source

“The ocean helps me and you so let’s help the ocean too!”

Gregory A., 7th grade, Dana Middle School

I choose this picture because I think the ocean helps the world by calming people down. For
many people, the ocean is where they go when they are stressed and just being around or in it
really helps them feel better. If people are less stressed, the world is a better place and people are
kinder to each other.

The Ocean Absorbs CO2 from the Ocean

Jasmin A., 8th grade,  Arroyo Seco Jr. High

In the old books he is called Indoda yoLwandlekazi, but his true name is too terrible to be spoken. It is said that he was once a guardian of life, and so created the ocean, a sanctuary for living organisms to seek refuge from Death. But the humans to whom he granted life were greedy, like Death. They snuffed out life and hunted entire species’ to extinction, enslaving others. In doing so they spat in the face of he who gave them, and all others, the gift of life. Indoda yoLwandlekazi grew bitter and hateful as humans corrupted the ocean with vile poison, that ocean which was originally a hallowed sanctuary. When humans are the only free life forms remaining on Earth, then Indoda yoLwandlekazi will understand that they are irredeemable, and Earth will be consumed in a fiery holocaust. And so Death will ultimately triumph, and the brief experiment that was life will be considered a failure, and forgotten about. That is why Earth Week is important, to preserve life, with the intent of avoiding the foretold apocalypse.

My aqua farm is growing everything.

The plants grow with fish poop and water.

There is a fence like screens that block the fish from getting sucked inside the tubes.

The tubes bring fresh water inside the tank.

Thalia C., 2nd grade, Chapman Elementary School

For my aquafarm I decided to make a diagram that grows salmon and uses pumps to pump the
waste produced by the salmon to fertilize the cucumber, carrot, and beet plants, growing on the
top part of aquafarm. After the plants use this wastewater to get nutrients the excess water will
filter into clean water for the salmon creating a cycle that will help produce both more fish and
healthy vegetables.
