Microworlds is a series of three educational videos produced by NOAA's Ocean Media Center and NOAA's Alaska Fisheries Science Center for the 5th grade Microworlds Science Unit developed by Science and Technology Concepts. Each video features a different NOAA scientist interacting with several Seattle Public School students, while employing microscopes to better understand the world around us. Through each episode, the series connects real-world science with real-world topics and issues that students and teachers deal with in the classroom.
The Microworlds series has received a Silver Telly award, and the opening video in this series, "What Do Marine Mammals Eat?" was an official selection at the 2011 Beneath the Waves Film Festival, 2011 Salish Sea Ecosystem Film Festival, and received an Award of Excellence in Motion Media and the Warren Sturgis Motion Media Award at the 82nd Annual meeting of the BioCommunications Association.
