The Health of the Ocean Matters to Me

Ocean Sciences Club video capture

See what students in our Ocean Sciences Club are saying about the ocean and what it means to them in this great video they made!


The Alaska SeaLife Center’s Ocean Sciences Club for Seward secondary students began in September 2012, thanks to the Seward Community Foundation and Alaska Airlines Foundation.

Over the course of the school year, students dug into a wide range of ocean topics — including a seabird necropsy, a comparative dissection of cephalopods, sea ice studies, Steller sea lion physiology, and other hands-on explorations. A mini-grant from NOAA provided the club with video cameras to record a year-end message summarizing their relationship to Alaska’s marine ecosystems.

The Ocean Sciences Club meets at the Alaska SeaLife Center every Wednesday from 5:00-6:30pm. Please visit the club’s blog at or email for more information.



  1. What a fun, creativity learning group for Seward. Join the fun

  2. I loved watching his video. The Ocean Science Club is definitely a special opportunity for students and a fun way to get immersed in more science.
