About Voice of the Sea

Voice of the Sea travels throughout Hawaiʻi and the Pacific meeting researchers, scientists and cultural practitioners. Episodes highlight ocean research and careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM)—covering topics from reef fish migration, to native birds, to nutrient cycles, to unusual deep-sea creatures. Watch to learn about current science research, its importance to you, and the ways in which traditional knowledge can inform science and management practices!

Science @ Home Ideas

For the remainder of the 2020 school year, we have put together family discussion ideas that pair with episodes scheduled for TV broadcast on Saturdays and Sundays in Hawaiʻi. We hope these ideas help those doing school science at home during the coronavirus pandemic!
