Results of the Award Ceremony of Popular Marine Science Picture Book Creation

1. Introduction

In response to the ideas of cherishing the ocean and sustaining ocean promoted by the “World Oceans Day,” and in order to guide teachers and students to care about issues related to the ocean, the Ministry of Education has since 2015 designated the week on which the World Oceans Day falls as the “Marine Education Week,” which is to encourage schools to strengthen courses or activities related to marine education in this week so as to continuously implement and promote marine education. On the premise of enhancing marine science literacy, the Ministry organized the event “Popular Marine Science Picture Book Creation” between March and December 2017, encouraging schools of all levels to organize activities that integrated popular marine science education in teaching designs. Through the teaching processes, teachers guided students to engage in “popular marine science picture book creation,” and practically implemented it in teaching, with a view to strengthening the application of popular marine science competence and its connection with life through combining popular marine science, and aesthetic and literary creations. This activity went through the procedures of preliminary, second, and final reviews, and 24 pieces of works were selected in March this year. Subsequently, works of popular marine science picture books will be displayed in the National Library of Public Information, Kaohsiung Public Library, and National Taiwan Ocean University so that more teachers, students and people can have the opportunity to know and appreciate excellent marine picture book creations, in the hope of stimulating public interest in exploring the oceans and arousing their awareness of the ocean, so that they can appreciate, cherish, and understand ocean.
