Ocean Quest chronicles the journey of an underdog team of junior high and high school students as they compete in the Shell Ocean Discovery XPRIZE to map the ocean floor. Their journey was captured over the course of two years in three countries and across multiple cities around the world. This team made history as the first students to qualify for the semi-final round. This story captures the determination of these students to overcome hardware malfunctions, the challenges of the ocean and overall historic odds to do something no one thought was possible.
