An Ocean Adventure

Created in collaboration with the Blue Marine Foundation, ‘An Ocean Adventure’ makerzine takes children on an interactive journey across our oceans where they discover the incredible jobs our oceans do to keep all of us alive. In the company of intrepid Planetari characters, they learn about the oceans major challenges and how we can take care of them. ‘An Ocean Adventure’ comes with interactive pop-out paper engineering and a cargo pack enabling children to build and create around the concepts they have learned, to contribute to a global art project and to take ocean saving action.


“A huge amount of work has gone into this, and it is unbelievably informative for that age group – actually, for any age group! If one of your purposes was to educate adults via their children, it has succeeded massively.” 

― Jonathan Porritt CBE, Founder Forum for the Future, UK

“Our children were fascinated by the Blue Marine Makerzine – the facts and information had them entranced and sparked a fierce curiosity about our fragile planet and its glorious seas.  Getting involved as a family sparked conversations that were not only fascinating but a valuable insight into how passionately they care about our environment.  We couldn’t get enough!” 

― Marina and Ben Fogle , Broadcaster, Writer, Adventurer, UK

“Planetari is more than a book, it is an adventure!  It takes children on a journey through the ocean to connect with this vast and magical aspect of the Earth’s landscape.  The activities provide opportunities for action-orientated learning, which is a critical component of both 21st century education and sustainable education.  Information is presented in an engaging way for upper primary students and the early high school years.  Until now there has been a lack of sustainability literature available for students and teachers to use in the classroom.  It has been a pleasure to experience this makerzine, which is an innovative educational resource.”
