Mike Irvine's graduate research at the University of Victoria's Faculty of Education focused on how underwater cameras connect kids to the ocean, motivating students to ask more questions and become more informed about human impacts on the ocean.
Irvine says the impact of his research comes from where he’s taking it. To explore how underwater dives and live-streaming technology might revolutionize ocean education globally, he’s brought together UVic ocean scientists, students, dive industry technicians, educators, engineers and tech enthusiasts to co-found the Fish Eye Project, a not-for-profit organization using innovative technology to build ocean awareness.
His goal is to motivate kids—big and small—to dig into marine science, to go beneath the waves and maybe be the researchers of the future who will pioneer the next wave of ocean communication.
