Additionally, Ocean Academy believes in building and maintaining collaborations with other local organizations centered on delivering hands-on science experiences that plunge students into learning. Our relationships improve our ability to promote personal growth, academic achievement and stewardship of the ocean environment among Bermudian youth.

The current organizations working with Ocean Academy’s Curriculum Enrichment Program are; Planet MathEndeavourWaterstart and Raleigh Bermuda. The Curriculum Enrichment Program supports these organizations through hands-on activities that foster ocean literacy through experiential learning.
