Attention Students!

Discovering the Ocean Book Cover


Are your teachers requiring you to cover your textbooks? Are you tired of covering them with boring brown bags? NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory has produced a book cover that will make your teacher happy and satisfy your search for adventure. The front of the Discovering the Ocean book cover will provide just the spark you need to imagine yourself ready to dive in to the study of our ocean. The book cover was recently updated and now lists the 7 things everyone should know about the ocean.

Read the cool comic on the back to learn that NASA uses satellites to study the surface of the ocean and to track marine life. Want to find out more about satellite oceanography? The book cover lists two online resources to help you, but a great place to begin is this site. Perhaps you're thinking about becoming an oceanographer yourself. Start here to become a Junior Oceanographer. Pass the quiz and you can print out your Junior Oceanographer certificate and have your name added to the Junior Oceanographers Hall of Fame. Let your parents know that our website will not store the name you put on your certificate.
