For students living and learning in an urban environment, the ocean is an abstract concept. Students from The Young Women’s Leadership School of Brooklyn, an all-girls 6-12th grade public school in Bushwick, Brooklyn, comprises a population of whom 82% qualify for a free or reduced-price lunch. For various reasons, these students rarely spend time outside. When they do, it is in concrete playgrounds, not at the beach or even in a park. However, the Polar-ICE Data Stories make the ocean accessible and engaging.
