Technology in Marine Science ROVs

Dates: July 28- August 1, 2019

Are you a middle or high school teacher looking to increase STEM activities in your classoom? 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 build an ROV from the circuit board up to take back to their classrooms to share with students. Teachers also have the opportunity to assemble a team to 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)

*3 graduate credits available through UWA. Additional tuition applies.*
