The first module of ONR’s Science and Technology Focus Site, an educational resource for students and teachers, spotlights Oceanography. The site explores all areas of the ocean, from the beaches and mangroves to the depths of the ocean basins and trenches. Colorful, interactive graphics teach about the processes that keep the ocean in motion. Quick quizzes and experiments test the viewers’ knowledge, and ONR’s CyberScientist is on call to answer any questions. USA Today declared the site a ‘Hot Site’ on Jan. 13, 2000.

If you like history and scuba diving, this is for you. The Baltic Sea, in NorthernEurope, is a cold brackish sea where wood is preserved for centuries. Many sunken ships stillwait to be discovered.

SharkFriends is a wonderful marine life site that focuses on educating visitors about sharks and other ocean animals too. I find it very nicely designed and easy to navigate. It’s especially nice to see a site showing information and pictures about sharks that educate rather than scare.
