Marine Archaeology: Using Underwater Robots to Investigate Long Island Waters
Dive into this engineering challenge and discover Long Island's rich history of shipwrecks by examining artifacts that were found in local waters. In this week-long, interdisciplinary workshop, students will learn how improvements in modern technology have allowed researchers to learn more about these underwater archaeological sites. Students will use modern instrumentation and develop engineering skills to research the following:
- Marine archaeology
- Helmet dive in the BNL pool
- Design, engineer, and construct a submersible Remote Operated Vehicle (ROV)
- Deploy the ROV in the field to explore the underwater environment
- Learn to use tools needed to investigate and document a wreck site
Participants must be entering Grades 10, 11, or 12
Participants must be 15 years or older at time of program.
Dates: July 7-11, 2014, 9 am - 4 pm
