High School Stem trip

The students visited the Marine Sanctuary operated by NOAA  in Alpena Michigan.  There they had opportunity to view some presentations from an ROV tech (Remote Operated Vehicles) that works with submersible robots.  They then had an opportunity to build from kits there own submersible robots and use those robots in a small pool to gather materials from the bottom of the pool.  Later the students traveled to ACC where they met with an instructor who showed them larger and more complex submersible robots and then they were able to drive them in simulation mode using computer simulators.  Click here to see some photos on our Facebook page!
