Ocean Tech

Challenging youth to explore & innovate

Register Today

Coming This Fall!

This fall Brilliant Labs and our partners are challenging youth to explore the ocean and embark on a journey of sustainability, entrepreneurialism and innovation. Our oceans drive global systems without these vast deep blue habitats Earth would not be habitable. The health and wellness of our oceans are connected to rainwater, fresh drinking water, weather systems, climate, food and the air we breathe – all are regulated by the ocean.

Early Registration

Official registrations will open this fall; however, if you have questions or want to register for the Ocean Tech Innovation Challenge early. Let’s connect and get ready to dive into the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal #14: Life Below Water. Together we can create new technology and sustainable practices that will ensure the health of Earth’s oceans. Register Today

Let's Explore

The Government of Canada is actively working to limit plastic pollution and have reported that “Microplastic particles are found in fresh and marine surface waters. These particles have been found in aquatic organisms, specifically fish and shellfish. In addition, microplastic particles may eventually sink in aquatic environments, leading to their accumulation in the bottom sediment. Microplastics are also found in soil.” (2022, Gov Cnd)

The Ocean Tech Innovation Challenge will encourage students to consider how science, observation, and innovation can be used to engineer solutions to help protect our oceans and sustainably grow our Blue Economies. With “Canada’s ocean economy accounts for $31.7 billion annually in gross domestic product and almost 300,000 jobs in fisheries and aquaculture, energy, shipping, tourism and recreation. Canada is developing a comprehensive Blue Economy Strategy” (Blue Economy, CND) It is more important than ever to do so in sustainable & ecologically responsible ways.
