Welcome to the Ocean 180 Video Challenge!

The Ocean 180 Video Challenge, sponsored by the Florida Center for Ocean Sciences Education Excellence (COSEE Florida), is designed to encourage ocean scientists to share their discoveries and excitement for research with teachers, students, and the public.
 
We challenge scientists to bring their latest research papers to life in a short video that not only summarizes the important findings but also highlights the relevance, meaning, and implications of the research to persons outside their discipline.  Although the videos will be initially judged by a panel of scientists and communication experts, the final winners will be selected by a diverse, and often very critical, group of potential-future ocean scientists – 6th-8th grade students from classrooms around the world.
 
Important dates and deadlines for the 2015 Ocean 180 Video Challenge as well as updated guidelines are now available. To learn more about Ocean 180 and how to get involved, please take a look at the recording of the Ocean 180 Information Session and the Student-Scientist Summit.
