Take the Plunge

Google oceans Ever wanted to show an earth science class what the underwater world under the oceans looks like, but didn’t want to get wet? The latest version of Google Earth lets you go for an underwater journey showing what the seafloor, mountains taller than Mt. Everest and trenches deeper than the Grand Canyon. Version 5 also lets you create tours – above ground or underwater – so every class gets the same treatment. All without needing a SCUBA mask or needing a towel. The 10MB application is available for a free download.
