What is Project Blue?
Project Blue is a digital port for content and education resources for the emerging blue economy. It includes a weekly Student Contest as well as Project Blue @Home, a virtual education platform designed to provide science-based programming to students of all ages. Through Project Blue, we hope to engage students to learn and convey their views on the importance of our ocean – the ocean economy, aquaculture, conservation, and much more!
Who is this content made for?
We are providing digestible, educational resources that are broadly accessible to students in grades 6-12. Project Blue @Home will have live video chats, video question-and-answer sessions, and audio lessons, hosted and taught by the best and brightest in their field.
How much does it cost?
All Project Blue materials are provided by our education staff and partners free of charge. We want to give families and teachers a resource during this chaotic time without it costing a dime.
How can I be a part of this?
Project Blue @Home is an informal educational experience, but we encourage you to engage with our live Q&A sessions and to share your ideas and creativity through our online portal.
What is the Project Blue Student Contest?
The Project Blue Student Contest is a weekly creative contest for students of all ages with cash prizes. Entries can be artwork, written work, videos, songs—any creative outlet you can think of. There’s a new theme each week, with the overarching message being “How the Ocean Can Save the World.” For details on how to enter, see the Project Blue Student Contest page.
