Ocean Discovery Institute, a nonprofit organization, uses science to engage young people from urban and underserved backgrounds and empowers them to transform their lives, their community, and ultimately the world as scientific and environmental leaders. Cox Communications and Ocean Discovery Institute have a partnership together, supporting the nonprofit’s Living Lab, a new state of the art science education facility in City Heights. Cox has been ODI’s earliest partners and the first corporation to invest in the landmark facility.
Through Cox Business, Cox is also providing business-level internet to power The Living Lab. This enables support for the Scientist in Residence studio that houses a series of science and conservation leaders from around the world, who reflect the diversity of the students they serve and the David C. Copley Ocean Alcove with wall-to-wall screens that live stream the view of the San Diego coastline, just 10 miles away, but rarely accessed by this community.
Listen to host Drew Schlosberg as he leads a conversation about this collaboration and also Cox’s history of supporting education and technology innovation in our community.
