Teacher Workshop: Technology in Marine Science ROVs
Event Date: June 11-15, 2017
Event Time: 8:00 am - 3:00 pm
Location: Dauphin Island Sea Lab
Are you a middle or high school teacher? Do you teach environmental science, marine science, engineering, physics, or physical science? This may be just the workshop for you! Teachers will learn about ROVs, remotely operated vehicles, and how they are used to explore, research, and work in ocean waters too deep or dangerous for humans. Fun field experiences include a trip aboard the R/V Alabama-Discovery and seeing a fully functional ROV at work. Teachers will be provided with ROV materials to take back to their school, where they will assemble a team of students to build and improve a basic ROV. Teams will return to the Sea Lab the following spring for an ROV competition!
Two teachers per school required, and must have administrative support for team component.
Tuition: $100 registration fee, refundable upon completion of workshop (workshop tuition, meals and housing is FREE)
Restricted to teachers from the Florida panhandle, Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana.
