Did You Hear That? Using Underwater Soundscapes to Evaluate Ocean Health in Aotearoa, New Zealand

To tackle the issue of an increasingly noisy ocean, we developed a novel education tool to increase participation in STEAM. The programme, ‘Sounds of the Sea’ enables our next generation of changemakers to work through three modules (Bronze, Silver, and Gold), that traverse instrument building, scientific theory, and communication. This programme encourages students to combine elements of ecology, physics, technology, and storytelling to connect with the ocean and solve real-world problems.
