Support educators to provide students with hands-on science activities and cutting-edge technology used by real scientists. 

To be successful in our ever-changing world, students must develop the critical thinking, problem-solving, collaboration, and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics) skills needed to tackle complex global issues like climate change. To empower educators and organizations to bring real-world learning to the classroom, Ocean Diagnostics and Water Rangers have teamed up to provide easy-to-use educational resources, tools and technology on water quality and microplastic pollution for middle and high schools. Join our FREE WEBINAR to learn how you can use these tools to introduce STEAM and the environment in your school.

Join our FREE WEBINAR to learn how to bridge real world environmental issues and classroom learning using our immersive toolkits 


Our toolkits were designed with and for educators to provide cross curricular learning, help to develop core competencies, increase student engagement and contribute real environmental data to tackle solutions. Attend the webinar to learn more about the kits and how they tie into your curriculum and teaching goals, hear case studies of educators using the kits to facilitate data-driven and inquiry-based learning, and explore the resources and training provided for educators to implement the kits in their classrooms.

Designed WITH educators FOR educators.

“The students were actively engaged and loved working as real scientists. They were able to examine a nearby lake and think about the changes and impact that their actions have on the local environment. They were very excited to have the chance to use real tools and to see how to share and document their findings with the wider research community.”



Grade 6 Educator

“The Toolkit is an invaluable addition to any classroom because it allows for hands-on experience away from a textbook - students gain a real-world perspective.”



Grade 12 Student

“Engaging my fellow students in the microplastics sampling was a perfect way to extend our extracurricular activities in an educational and fun way.”
