At Network Blue, we're not just teaching ocean science; we're reshaping its future. By leveraging affordable and innovative technology, we're democratising the study of our oceans, making it accessible to everyone. This is where the enthusiasm of the Maker Movement seamlessly blends with the intricate world of ocean science.


Our students actively participate in building, deploying, and monitoring an AusOcean Rig. This hands-on experience helps them cultivate a multitude of skills, from mastering technical aspects to honing communication and teamwork. Unlike traditional student competitions, the ultimate winner with Network Blue is our invaluable ocean environment. We champion a collaborative spirit, encouraging schools to collaborate, share insights, and combine resources.

Network Blue's reach goes beyond conventional STEM programs. While we seamlessly integrate with school curriculums, our appeal is widespread. Students delve into outdoor education, engage in water sports, initiate community projects, and even venture into entrepreneurship. A world of non-technical learning awaits every student. Dive in with our interactive Network Blue School STEM Program today.


Stay connected with the pulse of our projects in real-time. Our state-of-the-art Remote Monitoring and Management (RMM) system, fueled by AusOcean's VidGrind cloud service, offers instantaneous insights into rig performance. This ensures swift interventions and constant optimisations, keeping our projects at the pinnacle of efficiency. Students direct their own learning via our online learning platform Network Blue School STEM Program.

We recently celebrated a milestone in ocean conservation, sparked by Angus Riessen's vision from his time at Heathfield High School. Angus, who was part of the school's Entrepreneurial class, launched a social enterprise focused on sustainability called 'Happy Sustainability Ventures". His initial projects, creating masks and dog toys from recycled materials, were a success. This venture led to a collaboration with AusOcean, culminating in the construction and deployment of a data-collecting rig at the Harts Mill Pylons on the Port Adelaide River. The Rig, now gathering valuable dolphin footage, is a testament to Angus's dedication and the power of community and school collaboration in environmental initiatives.



We are proud to work with a number of schools and partners who share our passion for ocean conservation and  technology. Together, we are working towards a common goal of protecting our oceans. If you are interested in partnering with us, please get in touch.
