Ocean of Know is a not for profit 501(c)3 corporation founded in 1989 was driven by a vision of how true integration of technology could transform the experience of education for everyone. The cornerstone of Ocean of Know is Young McDonald’s Farm (YMF), a tele-robotic aquaponics farm located at the Rutgers University Research Greenhouse in New Jersey. Students can connect with the YMF via videoconferencing link, no matter where they are. YMF is the learning incubator for both teachers and students in our programs. It is the place where they learn to put technology to work for them, to achieve their own goals, satisfy their curiosity, and in the process learn math, science, programming, strengthen their literacy skills---seamlessly.
