Outreach session at Ocean Sciences: note you can submit one science
abstract AND one outreach abstract!

Session ID: 85847
Session Title: Imagining Ocean Science: Education and Outreach Using
Visualization, Storytelling and the Arts
Topic Area: Education, Outreach and Policy

Note: Your abstract will be considered for oral presentation, poster or
e-lightning (3-min intro plus interactive poster)

Ocean scientists are expanding education and outreach through innovative
narratives and multi-media experiences. From movies to TED talks to
best-selling books narratives hold the attention of an audience and
increase retention of information more than fact-based presentations. In an
era where expert opinions are derided and facts are questioned, alternative
connections to the public are needed to communicate science in a way that
presents topics of ocean health in an understandable manner. Immersive
methods, such as using data visualization, technology, and the arts enable
broader understanding of the ocean and offer students and learners new
opportunities to engage and train in ocean sciences. While entertaining,
immersive experiences offer an opportunity to provide rigorous scientific
data in a clear, easy to understand format. The goal of these efforts is to
engage a wider audience in scientific discovery, increase understanding in
the nature of ocean research, and encourage training in marine sciences.
This session welcomes creators of ocean science stories for education
(fiction, video, theater, podcasts, etc.), innovative research projects
(multi-media, data-visualization, etc.), and interactive storytelling.
Evaluation of these projects will be discussed, as well as how they can be
expanded and replicated across different research and locations.


When expert opinions are derided and facts are questioned, alternative
connections to students and to the public are needed. This session welcomes
creators of ocean science stories for education (fiction, video, theater,
podcasts), innovative research projects (multi-media, data-visualization),
and interactive storytelling, including evaluation and ideas for expansion
of these methods.

Abstract submissions due by 11 September 2019.
